According to the Baltimore Sun, former Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis was unable to complete his climb up Mount Kilimanjaro due to a fever and a foot injury.
Prior to the climb, TackleKili said that Lewis’ fever spiked and his foot began swelling.
The mission organization for World Serve International and Pros for Africa, TackleKili said Lewis made the choice to not go forward with the climb due to his health.
Smart move by Lewis. No sense in risking his life, after just retiring from football.
Lewis is in Tanzania to raise money and awareness about the need for clean water in East Africa.
Prior to the climb, Lewis and a philanthropic team have been providing hearing aids to children in a nearby village as part of the TackleKili mission.
