MOSCOW, June 25. /ITAR-TASS/. A group of Russian mountain climbers that includes people who were certified "physically impaired" have begun ascent to Mount Kilimanjaro, a volcanic mountain in Tanzania. It is the highest mountain in Africa at 5,895 meters or 19,341 feet above sea level, representatives of a charity marathon campaign "Life in Motion" reported in the Facebook.The Life in Motion team of mountain climbers includes Alexander Shulchev, Alexander Pokhilko, Ivan Gorbatenko. Two of them walk on crutches. Famous actor Igor Petrenko and representatives of charity foundations who take part in the campaign, are accompanying the physically impaired climbers in their endeavor to reach the highest mountain peak.
One should undergo special training to conquer the highest mount in Africa. Besides strong differences in the atmospheric pressure the climbers to Kilimanjaro are exposed to the pressure of load they are carrying on the way up.
Nonetheless, two years ago another team that climbed up to Kilimanjaro in the framework of the Life in Motion campaign, successfully reached the mountain peak, demonstrating to the whole world that people with restricted abilities have unrestricted possibilities.
Many famous actors - Chulpan Khamatova, Yevgeny Mironov, Ksenia Rapoport, Andrei Biljo, Igor Vernik and Ingeborga Dapkunaite, support the charity campaign to Kilimanjaro. The charity act aims to help people supported by “Artist, BELA, Linia Zhizni and Happy Families International” charity funds. It will continue until June 28. Volunteers are welcome to join.
