Jessica Biel, Emile Hirsch, And Friends Reach The Top Of Mt. Kilimanjaro

Want me to make you feel lazy for a minute? While you were feeling proud of yourself for making it to the gym a few times so far in the new year, Jessica Biel, Emile Hirsch, Lupe Fiasco, and Santi White were on a quest to climb Mount Kiliminjaro to raise awareness about the horrible state of drinking water around the globe. Today, after six days on the trail, they reached the summit of the tallest peak in Africa at 19,340 feet. Along the way, they encountered heavy rains, single-digit temperatures, and even a blizzard, but kept on trucking to take this photo at the top. “The last 48 hours have been the most intense and physically grueling experience of my life,” said Emile. “Miraculously, we all made it to the top together.” Lupe Fiasco added, “The thrill of conquering your fears, especially in such a physically and mentally taxing environment, can’t really be done justice in words.” Good work, folks.

Singer and producer Kenna organized the group in honor of his father who suffered diseases from drinking unclean water as a child growing up in Ethiopia. Biel believes that access to clean water is “a basic human necessity that needs to be addressed now” and is honored to be climbing Kilimanjaro with the team to help raise awareness and hopefully some dough. So I’m sure you’re all wondering what I’m wondering…is Justin Timberlake joining her? It’s not confirmed, but in a recent issue of GQ he said he was preparing for a major mountain climb.
