PJ Diesel Engineering CEO Mrs. Anne-Mette Elsborg has accepted the challenge of climbing Mount Kilimanjaro in September 2017 in support of the Danish Child accident prevention foundation.
This cause is close to my heart as someone very close to me suffered from leukemia as a child. It was my niece’s daughter, who was 8 years old when diagnosed. During her treatment, she spent a considerable amount of time in hospital. This was a challenging time. Hopefully the money I raise on this journey can help other hospitalized children, through the Danish child accident prevention foundation’s project “Legeheltene”. "Legeheltene" focuses on strengthening the mobility of hospitalized children through activities and games, creating positive experiences.
Personally, I was initially encouraged to participate by Jesper Lundorf. He has been part of my network for many years, and I have found him to be an important “counsellor” on a personal level. I soon realized that I very much wanted to be part of this – for many reasons. Not only will it support a good cause, it will be an adventure and not least a great challenge.
It’s been many years since I last challenged myself in this way. This goal does not only constitute reaching the top, but managing a collaboration between the psychological and the physical. I do, however, believe that walking as part of a group is a great help. That way, we can help each other forward.

About Climb for Charity
Climb for Charity is a charity project, where dedicated and engaged people together climb a mountain and fundraise for the Danish Child accident prevention foundation.
The Idea grew quickly into what today is known as Climb For Charity, where celebrities, CEO’s and other business people actively participate in fundraising, supported by companies in Denmark and abroad.
Climb for Charity was started in 2015 by Henrik Uth and Jesper Kramer, who wanted to create awareness around the foundation and its work on preventing accidents and increasing child safety in Denmark. The founders were determined that it should be physically challenges which should put focus on the importance of childrens’ safety.
