Kilimanjaro and Beyond: A Life-Changing Journey

Barry and Chris Finlay successfully climbed Mount Kilimanjaro in January 2009 and have since raised enough money, in conjunction with Plan Canada, to provide access to clean water and classrooms for a community in Tanzania. 

They are now embarking on a project to help youth and women ages 15-24 in Tanzania to establish businesses. 

Kilimanjaro and Beyond chronicles this journey with honesty and humour. 
After retiring in 2004, Barry Finlay learned that a largely sedentary lifestyle was affecting his health.  His determination to improve his diet and conditioning resulted in the trip documented in his book, co-written with his son Chris. 

Barry will speak on his journey and present a wide range of images from his travels.
