Our mission is to create a community of people whose lives have been affected by life challenges. To strive to develop support for each other, spread awareness, fund the struggle for a healthy world and celebrate the beauty and goodness of life. We believe that it is not how high you get or how far you go, but the difference you make along the way.
“The real voyage of discovery does not consist of seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes” - Marcel Proust

Climbing Kilimanjaro and surviving cancer are linked by a powerful mental attitude to make it happen. The successful participants must look ahead and visualize themselves reaching the other side of the challenge. There must be no doubts. The hiker must possess the positive outlook to reach the top, to not do too much thinking about it or worrying about it. Success begins with....
.....mental strength and endurance. Fighting cancer also requires never giving up, never giving in, regardless of the odds.
Since 2008 JOI has had well over a hundred climbers embark on the journey of climbing the tallest free-standing mountain in the world, Kilimanjaro. Over 90% of those climbers have successfully reached the top to see the sunrise over the curvature of the earth. Again in 2013, a new group of hikers will travel to Tanzania, Africa to climb. They will experience ups and downs. They will build friendships that will last forever and they will certainly have an experience they will never forget.
