Climb for Kids
When a team of celebrities took on the challenge of climbing Kilimanjaro, the highest mountain in Africa, they had no idea how tough it would be to reach the top. The documentary ‘Climb for Kids’, which was produced and directed by Michael Sheridan, follows their grueling six-day trek to the summit - a whopping 5,800 mtrs above sea level.

TV presenters Kathryn Thomas and Sile Seoige and comedians Karl Spain and Alan Shortt are among the celebrities and fundraisers who fought altitude sickness, exhaustion and dehydration to raise more than €250,000 for the Children's Medical Research Foundation.

Colin Farrell narrates their journey in a one-hour documentary that airs on RTÉ One on July 18th at 9.30pm. Tangerine edited, graded and delivered the programme, waiving all post-production costs in aid of the Crumlin Kids charity. Previous charitable projects for Crumlin Kids productions include ‘The Viking Run’ (shot in Norway) and the ‘Shamrock Run’ (shot in America), both produced and directed by Sheridan.

Alan Shortt reveals how the Kilimanjaro challenge took him to the edge. "If every footprint I left on the mountain, is worth one euro to the children of Crumlin, then the climb to the summit will be a massive achievement," he said. "Not everyone made it but each individual fought their own challenge over our six exhausting days. It certainly was the toughest experience of my life."

Catch ‘Climb for Kids’ on RTÉ One July 18th at 9.30pm.
