On July 16, 2015, WSI’s Co-founder Dan Monaghan was preparing to embark on a journey few people ever take: climbing Mount Kilimanjaro. Seven days and 19341 feet later, Dan – along with Olympian Cheryl Bernard, ET Canada host Rick Campanelli, HGTV host J.D. Scott and several others – reached the summit of the highest mountain in Africa.

Their mission was to climb Kili and raise awareness, through World Vision Canada, for children engaged in dirty, dangerous and degrading jobs. In the end, the group raised $143,000 for the cause – and had an adventure of a lifetime.

Nearly a year later, on June 8, 2016, the group was in Toronto for the premiere of a film documentary of their experience. Now that the film has been released, you can view the trailer or watch the full-length documentary on the incredible trek.

For more information on the Kili Climb for Kids, read this press release or visit the World Vision website. WSI’s role as a sponsor, and Dan’s participation in raising money to help women and girls who are victims of abuse and exploitation, is all part of our MCPH charity initiative.
