Patrick Kuria is set to break the world record by climbing Mount Kenya in 12 hours. 

On November 20, Kuria will embark on the course to climb the mountain which normally takes 4-6 days in half a day. 

Through the Summit Challenge, Kuria seeks to sensitize all Kenyans, especially those at the grassroots on the need for tree planting. 

The campaign is aimed at achieving the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 13 and 15 established by the United Nations. 

The challenge comes at a time when the COP 26 UN Climate Change Conference is set to take place in the UK  from 31st October to 12th November 2021.

Patrick resonates with the late Wangari Maathai's 'little thing' through climbing the mountain.

"It's the little things citizens do. That's what will make the difference. My little thing is planting trees." - Wangari Mathai. 

Patrick will launch his campaign virtually on Thursday 30th September at 7pm.

His aim is to have 50,000 treesplanted.
