Hi Rachelle,

In late July, I sent out the following message to my email lists and various vegan Facebook groups, primarily in San Diego, CA where I live. So far, with 5 climbers from 3 states, we’ve locked in the climb dates (Feb 25 – Mar 2, 2018) and are seeking up to 7 more vegan adventurers to join the team. Would you or anyone you know be interested in joining us? Would it be appropriate to list this as a meetup on your site?

Best, Mike



Wanted: 6-12 Vegan Adventurers!

Dear Vegan Brothers & Sisters, To challenge myself in my 65th year (21 as a vegan), I plan to summit Mt. Kilimanjaro on March 1, 2018. To join me on this quest, I’m seeking 6-12 very fit vegan adventurers. Besides fulfilling personal goals, this will be an opportunity to promote to the world what can be achieved on a strictly plant-based diet, and I will be seeking international publicity for our group’s aims and progress.

Concerned with cross-contamination and uncomfortable dining around others eating animal products, I’ve arranged with a very reputable company,, to guide what I believe will be the first 100% vegan team to trek up Africa’s highest mountain. We’ll also be partnering with the esteemed Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine to raise funds for their Barnard Medical Center in Washington D.C., which is dedicated to research, prevention, and treatment of lifestyle diseases through plant-based nutrition.

If you would like detailed information on dates, costs, and logistics, please email me at [address removed]. Please share this with any fellow vegans who you think might be interested. Best, Mike Weinberg San Diego, CA
