2019 Conquering Kili Class
Jason Kelce is a center in the NFL for the Philadelphia Eagles. Kelce had a notable football career at Cincinnati where, in his senior season, he was named Honorable Mention All-American and second team All-Big East. Despite lacking “true NFL size”, Kelce was projected a fourth to fifth round pick. He ran the fastest 40-yard dash time of all offensive linemen at the 2011 NFL Scouting Combine, with a 4.89-second time. Kelce was selected by the Philadelphia Eagles in the sixth round of the 2011 NFL Draft. During his time as an Eagle, Kelce has earned Super Bowl championship (LII), been named to the Pro Bowl twice (2014, 2016), and been named to the First-team All Pro (2017, 2018).
Each new Conquering Kili class accepts the challenge to embark for the summit, a walk that represents the miles that many African women journey on a daily basis to fetch water for their families. While training for the climb, each team member works to raise funds and transform communities through the gift of clean water.
