Climbing for a Cause
Giving is more impactful than ever and brings us closer to the world we want to live in. To date, Tusker has helped raise over 13 million dollars from dozens of Kilimanjaro Charity climbs.
Eddie Frank and his wife Amy have spent decades leading treks and expeditions all over the globe which simply couldn't be accomplished without the help of our native guides and their supporting communities.
