Mission Kilimanjaro- Tentative Itinerary

“Men really need sea monsters in their personal oceans… An ocean without its unnamed monsters would be like a completely dreamless sleep. The true biologist deals with life, with teeming, boisterous life, and learn something from it, learns that the first rule of life is living.”-John Steinbeck

With a little over 24 hours until our departure to Tanzania, I wanted to share our tentative itinerary with the Holy Cross family! We are very thankful to all of our donors that enabled us to get to this point and are excited to share the experience! I hope that this initiative will inspire you to follow your passions and take accountability for the direction of your life.

I will be sharing personal blog posts on this website while in Tanzania for those that wish to follow. To follow our entire team, please visit www.MissionKilimanjaro.comBe Your Own Hero!
