This October, 5 of Ireland’s leading models are setting out to climb Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania to raise funds for the Make a Wish foundation. Taking part are Georgia Salpa ( Celebrity Salon ), Daniella Moyles ( Bulletin TV), Louise Johnson ( Fade Street), Lynn Kelly (ex Miss Universe Ireland) and Roz Purcell ( ex-Miss Universe Ireland, Finalist Miss Universe). The quintet will be ditching their stilettoes for trekking boots for this very worthwhile cause.
To keep up to date with how the training is going or any last minute details the girls might like to share, you can follow the girl’s on their website or their facebook page.
We at Great Outdoors are supporting the girls on their adventure with technical advice on clothing and equipment for the varied conditions on the mountain.
Our own Kieran Creevy is involved with some of their mountain training sessions. Kieran, fresh from the Great Outdoors Kilimanjaro Challenge of last January, will help guide the girls to Uhuru peak, some 5895 metres above sea level, and back home safely.
