England international cerebral palsy football star Harry Baker is taking on the challenge of a lifetime by climbing Africa's highest mountain to raise money for underprivileged children.

The 26-year-old, who has earned himself numerous England caps, including appearances at three European Championships and four World Cups, will climb the 5,895 metre Mount Kilimanjaro later this month.

He will joined by blind adventurer and tv presenter Amar Latif and a team of trekkers to raise money for the Rafiki Thabo Foundation, a charity that enables education for disadvantaged children in Kenya, many of whom are living with disabilities.

Led by extreme explorer Bob Bhania and Kami Rita Sherpa – world record holder of 28 Everest summits – the challenge will put the spotlight on how anyone, including those living with disability, can overcome the most extreme challenges with a bit of support.
