Today Show struggling up Kilimanjaro

The Today Show‘s Ann Curry has been sent on assignment to climb Africa’s Mount Kilimanjaro.

The 52-year-old only got that assignment three weeks ago, leaving her little time to train. She describes it as “climbing a Stairmaster for six hours a day with 20 pounds on your back.”

Her stunt is for the NBC morning show’s “Ends of the Earth” feature, which begins Monday. It’s plotted out so if she does make it to the summit of the 19,000-plus-foot mountain, it’ll be shown during Friday’s edition of “Today.”

Kilimanjaro Education Foundation, (KEF), founded by Todd Grossmann, will be featured on the Today show today Tuesday between 7:00 – 9:00 a.m.
Todd and the KEF board of directors had dinner at the Onsea House restaurant.
