Mount Kilimajaro:I would like to challenge your readers to climb the awe-inspiring Mount Kilimanjaro to help save lives from meningitis.

Your readers have the chance to take on the highest mountain in Africa for this incredible adventure for Meningitis UK.

Both seasoned walkers and brave novices can sign up for this remarkable climb from January 2013.

The trip of a lifetime
The trip of a lifetime to Mount Kilimanjaro takes place from January 17 to 27 and covers a variety of diverse terrains, from jungle to volcanic craters, en route to the picturesque snow-capped Uhuru peak – the highest point in Africa at 5,895m high.

The challenge, called The Big Trek, promises to push participants to the limit while helping to raise funds towards wiping out meningitis.

Supporting the charity
Thousands of people die from the disease each year and taking part in a charity challenge is one of the ways in which people can help raise money towards finding a vaccine.

With your help, Meningitis UK will be able to beat this disease and spare thousands of families the heartache of losing a loved one in the future.
