Concluding a six-day climb, entertainers and activists including Jessica Biel, Emile Hirsch, Lupe Fiasco and Isabel Lucas reached the top of Tanzania’s Mt. Kilimanjaro today. They left at 1:30 AM and reached the summit in seven hours.

This trek was done to raise awareness of the global water crisis. At the summit, they all posed with a picture saying “SEND WATER”. Emile Hirsch said: “The last 48 hours have been the most intense and physically grueling experience of my life. Miraculously, we all made it to the top together. To have such a complete success for such a worthwhile cause – the global clean water crisis – more than reaching the summit is what is really satisfying.”

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.”
