- Join Us On Our Climb to the Top! -

EleVate 2021
EleVate 2021 is an empowering experience the Bell sisters will take on to motivate the masses! The ladies are hiking Mount Kilimanjaro, the tallest mountain in Africa and the 4th tallest mountain in the world!

Every year, the sisters choose a place to physically meet, bond, and have sisters therapy. Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro will allow the sisters to create stronger connections and become an unstoppable team as they work their way to the top.   


The trek up Mount Kilimanjaro will inspire us all to reach for higher heights even when they seem impossible to climb. This year we will EleVate and achieve our most ambitious goals!  


Join us on the journey and become a sponsor!

Mount Kilimanjaro

Mount Kilimanjaro, is located in the East African country, Tanzania. It peaks at an incredible summit of 19,341 feet above sea level. Approximately 30,000 people climb Kilimanjaro every year, but only 50 percent of those climbers make it to the top.

Altitude sickness, improper gear, and lack of endurance are the top reasons climbers are unable to complete the 3-day journey. As you ascend the mountain, the oxygen available decreases and can lead to a myriad of acute health issues. Trekkers that do not have the endurance to backpack for long periods of time and are not suited with proper hiking gear will more than likely not complete the climb.
Mount Kilimanjaro includes five distinct ecological zones. Each zone gets colder and drier as the elevation increases. Plant and animal life disappear with the rise in altitude throughout the hike until the arctic zone with Kilimanjaro's glaciers is reached at the summit.

In 2018, history was made when the first American all-black expedition team climbed Mount Kilimanjaro. Since then, more and more African Americans are exploring the opportunity to make the climb!


The Bell sisters are ready to join the history books as a team of powerful black women climbing Africa’s highest peak!
