#KiliTeam2017: Steve

Kilimanjaro is a giant stratovolcano that began forming a million years ago when lava spilled from the Rift Valley zone. The mountain was built by successive lava flows. Two of its three peaks—Mawenzi and Shira—are extinct while Kibo, the highest peak is dormant.

Steve Sims isn't intimidated by Kili's volcanic history. In fact, Steve's own history has seen him play a mountainous role in Outward Bound's development.

Steve's relationship with Outward Bound Canada began in the 1990s, when he was the accountant for what was then the Canadian Outward Bound Wilderness School. Since that time Steve has travelled the world seeking outdoor adventures.

Having always wanted to climb Mount Kilimanjaro, when the opportunity arose to reconnect with Outward Bound Canada and climb Kilimanjaro, he couldn’t refuse! Steve is thrilled to be climbing Kili to support Outward Bound's charitable programs, and has set an ambitious fundraising goal.
