Another kiwi celebrating his 30th birthday in Africa

18 Apr

The other day I got an email from a fellow kiwi by the name of Chris Flack who will be spending his 30th birthday on the roof of Africa, Mt Kilmanjaro. I thought Chris’s email was more than worthy of a mention to shed some light on what he is doing for his home city of Christchurch. Check out his email below.

I’ve just started a fundrasier for the NZ earthquake appeal. http://www.kilimanjaronz.com (looks like we’re both using the same template).  We’ll be climbing Mt Kilimanjrao in August with the aim of raising £5985 (the height of kili in metres) for the chch earthquake appeal – anyway i thought if you’re in the country you might want to join us on the hike

Unfortunately money and time won’t allow us to be joining Chris on his expedition as we will be pedalling our little butts off trying to get to our destination in time to welcome the sea container.

I wish Chris and his team the best of luck on their endeavour. And if you at home are wanting to join Chris’s Kilimanjaro expedition then go check out his web site www.kilimanjaronz.com, he is looking for 12 team members. Who knows, after climbing Kili you could come and visit Mandy and I at the sea container.

Check out this Sunday Star Times article on what Chris is doing.
