FOR THE LOVE OF AFRICAN GRANDMOTHERS FITNESS CHALLENGE 2023
We have climbed the mountain – now making our way down.
The Tikun Olam Gogos fitniks are off to Tanzania and Mount Kilimanjaro – all 5895 metres of it!
We are lacing up our virtual hiking boots to show how much we love our grandmothers – those of memory who influenced us to be strong, independent, caring women, and our African gogos, who inspire us to rise to life’s every challenge with hope, courage and the determination to prevail.
A grandmother’s bond, across generations or continents, is unbreakable. So we are putting ourselves heart, soul and muscle into paying tribute to those who have shaped us, and those who still find their lives radically uprooted by the AIDS and coronavirus pandemics.
Every kilometer walked, run or cycled by the team will be deemed equal to 1 meter of altitude gain and take us that much closer to the 5895 meter peak!
We’d love to have you with on our journey of solidarity and homage – the more feet the better!
