Kilimanjaro Ascent for Arthritis - FREE DVD

It was the challenge of a lifetime: a young Sydney man with arthritis and the world's highest free standing mountain.

Matthew Leibowitz has ankylosing spondylitis - a debilitating form of arthritis but it wasn't going to stop him leading 19 people in  an inspirational assault on Africa's Mount Kilimanjaro. Among the group were Matthew's friends - Jonathon Shapiro, Daniel Been, Peter Collins and Jeremy  Unger - his rheumatologist, Dr Jim Bertouch, and the Chair of Rheumatology at the University of Sydney, Professor Philip Sambrook, who filmed the trek.

They raised more than $90,000 for Arthritis Australia, proving life's obstacles, arthritis included, can be overcome with determination and teamwork.
