Rana Taghdisi

Rana will be climbing the 7 Day TK Rongai Route from 14th – 20th July 2013. The proceeds from Rana’s campaign will directed to support Neuroendocrine Cancer Research.

While I may not seem like the “nature” type and you may not expect to find me at the summit of the highest freestanding mountain in the world, this summer I will in fact be taking on the challenge of a lifetime as I climb to the peak of Mount Kilimanjaro at 5,895 meters above sea level. On July 14th, I will commence my 7-day hike up the Rongai Route in support of Neuroendocrine Cancer Research. Having been inspired by a close friend’s ongoing battle with this disease, my goal is to raise $1 per meter to the summit and am asking for your help in achieving this goal. It is only through heightened awareness and continued research that we will hopefully one day make a breakthrough in finding a cure. Please join me in making a difference in the fight against cancer.

This campaign closed, having raised USD 8,260.
