He Did It! Dickey Reaches The Top Of Kilimanjaro!
We had done it! We gave hugs and high-fives all around above the clouds at the highest point in Africa.
The view was unforgettably magnificent, as incredible as anything I have ever seen. But as I took time to contemplate, I realized that the reason the view was so rich was the overall experience of the trek. We had walked approximately 40 miles and climbed 13,000 feet since the beginning of the journey, overcoming all kinds of adversities. All the while, we were building relationships with everyone from the porters to one another, sharing in our triumphs and helping one another in times of need.

Great job by R.A. Dickey for an amazing accomplishment and fantastic achievement. Dickey set out to do this to raise awareness for the Bombay Teen Challenge, an organization that rescues and cares for women and girls in Mumbai who are at risk of being abused and exploited. It’s an honor and a privilege to have him as a part of this Mets team. He’s a very special player, person, family man and humanitarian. Truly a rare breed among baseball players.
