Retired Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis announced that he plans to climb Africa's Mount Kilimanjaro.
"In one month, I will climb Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania to raise money and awareness for clean water projects in East Africa," Lewis announced on his web site. "I am so FIRED UP for this adventure."
Mt. Kilimanjaro is the world's tallest free-standing mountain at more than 19,000 feet high.
Lewis retired after the Ravens beat the San Francisco 49ers in the Super Bowl in February, wrapping up a sure 17-year Hall of Fame career.
Now Lewis will face a new challenge in climbing a mountain that is more than 3 1/2 miles high.
