Minnesota Chapter

Mt. Kilimanjaro

Event Overview

Mt. K

Dennis Forster is climbing Africa's highest mountain in January. At 19,340' Kilimanjaro will be a formidable challenge and it would be great to raise an equal amount for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

• $100 for a picture carried to the top and left with a great view. Please get the picture mailed to me by September 14th.

• $100 for a spot on my climbing shirt. Space is limited. Names are due by Sept. 14th. Depending on summit weather, which can fall to below minus 40 without the windchill, I'm hoping I can get a cool (or cold) picture from the top.

• $200 for a phone call from the top. Time is limited and air is thin, but I've never been short on conversation. Please get me the number to reach you at around 5:00 pm on summit day January 25th.

Please make the checks out to CFF and have the memo line “Mt. Kilimanjaro – Dennis Forster”

Important note on attendance for people with CF and their families:
The health and well-being of people with cystic fibrosis is our top priority. Medical evidence shows that certain bacteria can be passed between individuals who have CF and can lead to worse symptoms and speed decline in lung function. To limit the serious risk of cross-infection between people with CF, only one person with CF may be invited to attend the indoor portion of each CF Foundation-sponsored event.  For the outdoor portion of the event, people with CF should maintain a distance of at least 6 feet from each other.

Please note: People with CF and their families should be aware that individuals with CF might choose to attend Foundation events or meetings without notifying event organizers. We strongly discourage this; however, we cannot guarantee that only one person with CF will be present at any indoor Foundation event. For more information, please call your local chapter.
