An eight-year-old girl just made it to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro. In doing so, Roxy Getter has become the youngest girl to ever summit the 19,341-foot tall mountain.
Roxy spoke out about the feat.
“Day one was one of the hardest days…it was like the second hardest…because you had to go like up down and up and down and then you had to do the steep stair.”
Roxy was joined in the adventure with her parents and her brother. The family trained together in Florida before heading out on the trip by using the stairs at local parking garages, stadiums, and bridges.
Dad Bobby Getter explained that the kids remained dedicated the entire time.
“You see them in front of you and you’re just, you can barely do it yourself, and then there they are. We’re so proud of them.”
