8-Year-Old Florida Girl Is Youngest To Climb Mount Kilimanjaro

Posted: Updated:
FLORIDA -

A Florida girl just returned home from making history in Africa. 

8-year-old Roxy is the youngest female to climb Mount Kilimanjaro. Her entire family made the climb, including her 10-year-old brother. 

"We went on a big journey to Africa and did safaris and climbed Mount Kilimanjaro." 

The family says they didn't have a lot of options for training, so they just ran up and down a lot of steps and took a lot of walks. 

The climb was also the first time the family had ever camped out.
