When Roxy Getter returns to school this fall, the eight-year-old will have a pretty good story about what she did last summer. This kid from Punta Gorda, Florida has become the youngest girl to conquer Mount Kilimanjaro.
She was on vacation with her family in Tanzania and they trekked to the top of the 19,341-foot mountain. They spent almost a week climbing the mountain and trained for the hike before they left.
“I can’t believe she did it," says her dad, Bobby Getter. “She didn’t stop. She didn’t complain. I was surprised but very happy for her."
And how does Roxy feel about her record-setting climb? “It was pretty cool to say you got to the top of the mountain,” she says.
