Trekking for Education: Matthew Gardener

Today we wanted to share with you the adventures of one of our dearest clients and friends: Matt.


In June 2019, Matt will travel to Tanzania to attempt to climb Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest mountain in Africa and the tallest free standing mountain in the world. Kilimanjaro is part of the famous ‘seven summits‘ of the world. This climb will take 7 long days of hiking to reach the summit from base camp.

From Matt:
La Holista Co., Ltd. have been an incredible support, with their Protein Sports Balls and Meal Replacement Bars which have helped me with my training, their weekly wholesome lunch delivery service which has improved my diet, and their monthly hikes which have given me plenty of training opportunities.’

As an incentive, Matt will raise money for 2 charities – St. Joseph’s Charity School in Bien Hoa, and Classrooms in the Clouds in Nepal. Both organisations rely heavily on donations, and both do incredible work for children in need. Matt has been completing charity hikes for the past 3 years, and always choose to raise money for child focused organisations.
