Go Beyond: Trek to the Roof of Africa
By Vivek Goenka, executive director of Warren Tea Ltd and EO Kolkata member
We began the MyEO Go Beyond group three years ago with the goal of making members go beyond their comfort zones and achieve something that they truly felt was impossible—to go beyond their realms of imagination as they pursue and accomplish dreams that genuinely make a mark in their lives.
I was guilty of sitting back for many years, and MyEO offered the perfect opportunity to explore and achieve incredible things with my EO buddies. After the success of the first two MyEO Go Beyond events—the 25-kilometer Kolkata Marathon in 2014 and the Trek to Everest Base Camp in 2015—it was time for something faster, higher and stronger. We set our sights on the tallest free-standing mountain in the world: Mount Kilimanjaro.
