From September 3 to 13, a charitable ascent to the highest mountain in Africa, Kilimanjaro (5,895 m), will take place. A team of
athletes for the good,
consisting of eleven people, will go to the top. The main characters of the climb will be young people with Down syndrome Stanislav Bogdanov from Moscow and Stepan Bezrukov from Nizhny Novgorod, the famous marathon runner with cerebral palsy Pavel Krysanov and the pupil of the Udomelsky orphanage Alexander Lebedev. With their participation in the project, athletes will try to destroy the stereotypes associated with their diagnoses and life circumstances.
The expedition will be attended by employees of the Love Syndrome Foundation and Kaspersky Lab, who will help athletes.
The charitable goal of the project is to collect 589,500 rubles for educational and developmental programs for people with Down syndrome. At the end of September, the results will be announced and Kaspersky Lab will double the amount collected.
You can support the project and the team on the site of the Love Syndrome Foundation.
