On June 10th, Spencer West will be climbing 20,000 steps to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro, the tallest mountain in Africa and the tallest freestanding mountain in the world.
His goal is to raise 750,000 dollars to provide clean water for the people that have been affected by the drought.
But what really makes this amazing is that age 5, Spencer had both his legs amputated. He's doing this to raise awareness about the drought that affected east Africa so badly last year. As Spencer put it "As I've heard before, you can't eliminate a problem by simply declaring that it's over. It's not like turning a tap off. And drought doesn't get a summer vacation. "
