Timmerman Traverse for Damon Runyon wraps up Kilimanjaro

Hi everyone, We all reached Arusha yesterday for showers, and celebration. Today many of the team are off on safari, with family or traveling home. A huge congratulations to everyone on the team for reaching their goals: Raising over $1 million dollars to fund cutting edge cancer research via the Damon Runyon cancer research foundation. Reaching the top of Kilimanjaro as a team with the help of our amazing Tanzanian crew. We could not complete this journey together without the support and love from our Tanzanian crew of guides, chefs, tent crew, toilet crew, waiters and porters. They work so hard to make it successful for all members. Deep friendships were formed on this journey and the results of that have been and will be palpable going forward. Eric, Luke and team Timmerman Traverse for Damon Runyon Kilimanjaro 2024 Thanks Eric Murphy
