Ravens Legend Ray Lewis to Climb Mt. Kilimanjaro for Charity

Retired Raven’s linebacker, Ray Lewis is in the spotlight again, but his time it’s all for a good cause. The larger than life Super Bowl champ has decided to tackle the 19,000+-foot summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro for charity. Mt. Kilinamjaro, made famous by Ernest Hemingway’s “The Snows of Kilimanjaro,” is the highest mountain in Tanzania, the highest mountain in Africa, and the highest free-standing mountain in the world at 5,895 metres or 19,341 feet above sea level. Lewis’s ascent is set to raise funds for clean water for the children of Africa.

Ray Lewis, a flamboyant and controversial figure, played linebacker for the Baltimore Ravens for 17 years. After a triceps tear that sidelined him for most of the 2012–13 season, Lewis returned and guided the Ravens through the season’s playoffs to the ultimate victory, Super Bowl XLVII. On March 13, 2013, the media announced that Lewis was joining ESPN as a contributor for their NFL coverage.

The following E:60 video shows Ray Lewis with Rachel Nichols speaking about the man who fueled Lewis’s legendary intensity, in an exclusive look at a family trying to break the generational curse of abandonment:
