And akin to his now-former NFL career, Lewis’ team features star power.
USA Today Sports reports that the Hall of Fame-bound linebacker will be joined by Doug Pitt, brother of Brad Pitt and goodwill ambassador to the country, for the excursion.
They, along with ex-Bears defensive tackle Tommie Harris, will scale the mountain for a mission called TackleKili, which aims to raise money for clean water projects in East Africa.
The group is expected to reach Kilimanjaro’s top on Sunday, but already made a difference before they left, providing local kids with fitted hearing aids.

Great pictures, great cause. But the all (not so) important question: will there be a Lewis chicken dance at the summit?
