Conquering Kilimanjaro: Watch the Full Documentary


More than a film, “Conquering Kilimanjaro” is an inspirational shout out to cancer survivors everywhere that celebrates the power of love and the irrepressible nature of the human spirit.

It is a Emmy-nominated feature-length documentary on the Survivor Summit participants’ life-changing efforts to climb Tanzania’s Mt. Kilimanjaro, the world’s highest freestanding mountain at 19,341 feet.

“Conquering Kilimanjaro” shares the journey that combines one of the world’s greatest mountains, one of the world’s greatest mountaineers and one of the world’s greatest causes into one of the world’s greatest adventures!

“Conquering Kilimanjaro” is a feature-length documentary by Growing Bolder Founder/CEO Marc Middleton, which follows world-renowned mountaineer Chris Warner as he leads 16 cancer survivors and advocates to the frozen summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro.

The 16 members of the Kilimanjaro summit team were, for the most part, complete strangers before meeting one another just one day before their adventure began. Despite that fact, within hours of meeting one another, they made a stunning decision that, statistically, all but doomed their chance of success. In reality, it was a decision that created a lifelong bond and the opportunity for an even greater success.

Not only did Middleton climb Mt. Kilimanjaro, he shot, wrote and directed the documentary. “Our film is about the power of love and importance of family and friends,” he said. “It’s about ordinary people achieving something extraordinary and is an inspirational shout-out to anyone who has faced or is facing a major challenge in their lives.”
