On Sunday 6th April the Roedy’s start their 5 day ascend to the highest mountain in Africa and the highest free standing mountain in the world, at 19,341 feet!
We will raise money for two important charities. ‘Seeds of Peace’ and ‘The Staying Alive Foundation’. Noa and Liam have been actively involved already, with Liam becoming a ‘Seed’ last summer and Noa working for the Staying Alive Foundation during her last year of High School. This will be Rocky’s and Tiger’s first opportunity to help raise awareness, and what an exciting and challenging one at that, being only 12 and 10 years old!
Seeds of Peace has set the standard in international peace-building since 1993, by providing exceptional young people and educators from regions of conflict with an otherwise impossible opportunity to meet their historic enemies face-to-face at the International Camp in Maine. There are now over 5,000 Seeds and Educators from 27 countries who prove that solutions exist, peace is possible, and there is reason to have hope for a better future.
The MTV Staying Alive Foundation, fights HIV the smart way, by supporting innovative projects in the areas that need it most by funding the creative and ambitious young leaders that run them. The Staying Alive Foundation produces ground-breaking global content that reinforces the aim: to stop HIV before it even starts.Staying Alive is now the world’s largest HIV mass media awareness and prevention campaign to promote safer lifestyle choices and fight the stigma and discrimination which fuels the HIV epidemic.
