A team of vegans are set to scale the world highest free-standing mountain in March of 2018, to show anything can be achieved on a plant-based diet.

The climb is titled “Vegan Kilimanjaro Plant‑Based Nutrition Challenge” and will be the first of its kind.

According to Vegnews: “Once participants reach the Uhuru Peak summit, they will unravel a banner dedicated to plant-based medical group Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine.”

“As a passionate vegan and PCRM supporter,” 50-year-old participant Sharon Warner said, “I knew this was the trip for me, and I immediately enticed my two athletic daughters to join me.”

Warner and her family, daughters Alexandra and Madison along with spouse Christopher, will ascend the 19,341-foot peak in the hopes of proving that veganism and athleticism are not mutually exclusive.

“Our international team now includes participants from Canada, Norway, South Africa, and Belarus,” trek organizer Mike Weinberg said. “To prove the heights of achievement possible on a plant-based diet, we’re all eager to reach the peak of Kilimanjaro.”
