Good News: 7 Year Old Texan Becomes Youngest Girl To Climb Mount Kilimanjaro

Via: climbmountkilimanjaro

A 7-year-old Texas girl has made history – by being the youngest girl to climb Mount Kilimanjaro – the highest mountain in Africa.

Montannah Kenney of Austin climbed the 19,341-foot mountain with her mother, Hollie Kenney, who is a former professional triathlete.

The duo climbed the mountain to honor Montannah’s dad, who passed away when she was 3.

“The higher I go, the closer I am to him in heaven,” Montannah said.

Kenney is a second-grader at River Ridge Elementary School.
