This June our Hike for Heaven team (Allie Cunningham, David Doherty, Steve Ho, Steve Stafford and David Wells) traveled to Tanzania under our Unite Tour program with Unite's Founder & Director Anne Wells to meet our Foundation's team & partners in Africa, tour St. Joseph's Orphanage and the Heaven School, get to know many of the children, and... climb Africa's highest peak Mt. Kilimanjaro (19,340 feet).
Here, a gallery of images of this amazing team during their time spent at The St. Joseph's Orphanage and Heaven School. Allie Cunningham arrived at St. Joseph's a few weeks ahead of the rest of us to spend time volunteering, teaching the children, getting Unite's student sponsor letters complete and generally supporting Sister Crispina with all the work she faces each and every day. We are so grateful to Allie for also raising funds to purchase bikes for the orphans (a sampling of sizes to share). It is the first time in their lives they have ever had the chance to ride a bike and every one of them, from age 3-26, absolutely LOVE this new adventure. Riding a bike is clearly a timeless ageless joy all over this precious planet! Asante sana Allie! Allie also served as our videographer during the Hike for Heaven and we are grateful for her footage, some of which is shown in our HIKE FOR HEAVEN EY version (link above).
