Janice Carr walked for six days up Africa's tallest mountain, Kiliminjaro, to help raise funds for Angel Ranch, an emergency shelter for the victims of child abuse and neglect.
Carr trained for more than a year for the trip, walking back and forth from Abbeville to Oxford, even during the hottest of days this summer. She asked people to pledge a donation to Angel Ranch if she made it to the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro.
She returned home on Sept. 28 and hopes all will make good on their promises (and is hoping to attract a few more too). You can make a donation via PayPal here or make checks payable to Angel Ranch (note in the memo, “Mt. Kilimanjaro”) and mail to PO Box 120, Oxford, MS 38655. All donations are tax deductible, 100% of which go to Angel Ranch.
