Conquering Kili

Fundraising Goal


Progress to Goal

$ 163,274

Each season, Waterboys champion, Green Beret and former Seattle Seahawk Nate Boyer and the rest of the Waterboys challenge combat veterans and NFL alumni to take on a new mission: conquering Africa’s highest peak, Mount Kilimanjaro.

The goal of Conquering Kili is to empower former NFL players and military combat veterans to continue their commitment to service and bettering communities by climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro and raising funds to build sustainable water wells.

If you are a military veteran who is looking to make a difference and give back to communities in East Africa, please email us and let us know more about why you would be a fit for our 2018 Team.
