Last year, Kenya experienced its worst drought in 60 years, and its effects are still being felt. In its time of need, Spencer decided to give back in his own unique way – by climbing Mount Kilimanjaro. His extraordinary feat attracted worldwide media attention, including CTV, CBS, the Telegraph, People Magazine and the BBC. With the world watching, Spencer successfully reached the summit of Kilimanjaro, raising over $500,000 to bring sustainable clean water projects in communities affected by the drought.
His words have encouraged millions of young people to become more socially involved in their communities and the world. Spencer shares his incredible story with the world in his memoir, Standing Tall: My Journey.
