Ray Lewis to climb Mount Kilimanjaro

Sure, Ray Lewis has played at Mile High Stadium. But

that’s nothing compared with his first big project in

retirement.

After going out as a Super Bowl champion, the former Ravens

linebacker intends to climb Africa’s Mount Kilimanjaro.

As he announced

“In one month, I will climb Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania to

raise money and awareness for clean water projects in East Africa.

I am so FIRED UP for this adventure.”

Some guys take up golf after they retire from the NFL. But the

future Hall of Famer intends to take on the world’s tallest

free-standing mountain, more than 19,000 feet high. And though

Lewis faced Bengals and Bears over his 17-year NFL career, he could

encounter

elephants and

leopards on his ascent.

But just think how his signature dance would look more than 3

½ miles above sea level.
