Ray Lewis, who retired from the NFL after lifting a second SuperBowl title back in February, is set to climb Mount Kilimanjaro for charity.

The Baltimore Ravens legend, who spent 16-years with the team who drafted him in the 1996 first round, has been relatively quiet since calling time on his career.

However, that’s about to change as Lewis embarks on a trek up the 19,336-foot peak in Africa. Former Chicago Bears tackle Tommie Harris and Doug Pitt, the brother of Hollywood actor Brad, are also taking up the challenge.

The cause is a good one, with the trio looking to raise money for “TackleKili”, which looks to raise both awareness and money for clean water projects in East Africa.

And, the climb up the tallest free-standing mountain in the world began on Wednesday, with the intrepid trio scheduled to reach the summit of the mountain at some point on Sunday.
