FINALLY AT THE MT KILIMANJARO PEEK: US AND UK CELEBS
Despite a nasty snowstorm that slowed their progress, the Summit on the Summit team made it to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro on Tuesday (January 12), completing a six-day, 50-mile trek aimed at raising awareness about clean water.
"Even with as many grandiose illusions that I have had, this has gone beyond my wildest dreams and expectations," said trip leader Kenna in a statement about the ascent to the peak of the tallest mountain in Africa, on which he was joined by a crew that included actors Emile Hirsch, Jessica Biel and Isabel Lucas, musicians Lupe Fiasco and Santigold, and a group of eminent scientists and activists. "The influencers, educators, staff, crew, and publicists have literally braved this on behalf of the world and, in a personally meaningful way, on behalf of my father."
The journey will be chronicled in a 90-minute documentary slated to air on March 14 at 9 p.m. on MTV
