My name is Gavin J. Monsour and much like my literary friend and fellow adventurer, Geronimo Stilton, I too am planning on climbing to the top of the famous Mount Kilimanjaro. When I first read Mighty Mount Kilimanjaro (when I was 6… actually, dad read it to me), I told my mom and dad that I wanted to accomplish this feat. The original plan was to do this when I got a bit older, but with some persistence I convinced my parents, and the Tanzanian authorities to let me climb when I am ten.
The training has already begun, but the actual climb date will be in June 2015. The climb has become a pretty big deal according to my parents. Turns out I will be the youngest Canadian to summit Kilimanjaro. So to up the ante a bit I decided that I would like to raise money for Camp Oochigeas, a camp for kids with cancer. So make sure that you hit the Donate Now button here and help me beat my goal of $50,000.
