    Our Summits of Hope Kilimanjaro 2016 team are at the top of Africa!! Great work!!! Summit call came in at 8:50pm Vancouver time, but unfortunately it cuts off after 20 seconds. I'm sure they're flying the prayer flags with people's messages of hope on them and sending the messages written on them up to the heavens! Thank you to everyone who has supported.

    Roxanne Bouchard's update from Crater Camp at 18,370ft.nnHello everyone this is Roxanne Bouchard calling from Crater Camp. Which is at 18,370 feet. So we are really really high and it can be felt for most of us at the moment. Our day today started at School Hut Camp as James mentioned earlier and we walked for a good 7 - 8 hours. That was about 15,585 inches (possibly means feet). It was very very steep, I would say probably the most difficult day for me and I'm sure I can speak for most of us when I say this... (transmission broken).nnFollow their climb at www.summitsofhope.com/baseCamp

We climb mountains for children who cannot.

As we climb, we honour lives lost, celebrate survivors, and support some of the best care and research in the world at BC Children’s Hospital.


Our plans for the future are very exciting. As the reputation of our group grows, we are able to offer our climber/fundraisers incredible value in totally unique "adventure travel" mountaineering expeditions.

Our goal is not just to climb some of the world’s most extreme mountains. We also want to help BC Children’s Hospital fund some of the best research in the world, improve the quality of life of sick children, educate and provide care for those children who need it most.
