When someone takes on a challenging physical activities (e.g., Marathon, mountain climbing) to raise fund for a cause, that person showed his or her commitment to his/ her cause and inspire his/ her friends to donate to the cause he/ she is believe in.
For this purpose, five volunteers of Kechara Indonesia will take on a fundraising challenge to climb mount Sumeru, 3,676 meter above sea level.
About mount Sumeru
Mount Sumeru is the center of universe in Buddhist cosmology and by extension Hindu cosmology. The legend said that the mountain was transported from India to the western part of Java island. However, the island started to tip as a result, thus the mountain is being moved eastward.
Mount Sumeru is located in the eastern part of Java island and is an active volcano. It is known as the highest peak in Java, 3,676 m above sea level.
