4. To visit a paradisiac corner of Tanzania, home not only to the Kilimanjaro, but also to the best known safari parks on the planet.
5. To visit the semi-nomadic Maasai communities of Northern Tanzania.
6. To have a chance to run a 5K or a marathon in The School of St Jude's Ultimate Kilimanjaro Challenge, kicking off in February 2014.
