Isabel Lucas and Jessica Biel are part of a star-studded group who are attempting to climb Africa’s highest mountain to raise awareness about the global shortage of clean drinking water. The group kicked-off their quest Wednesday and spent several days before the trek in a village in Tanzania getting to know the locals.
Other climbers include Out of the Wild star Emile Hirsch; Alexandra Cousteau, granddaughter of iconic ocean explorer Jacques Cousteau; Elizabeth Gore, an executive with the United Nations Foundation; rapper Lupe Fiasco; Kick Kennedy, an environmentalist and granddaughter of Robert F. Kennedy, and Grammy-nominated musician Kenna, the Ethiopian-born founder of the initiative, who is leading the climb. You can follow Isabel’s Mt. Kilimanjaro climb on the Summit on the Summit website.
