timberlake_kilimanjaroThis one slipped completely by our radar — but last week, Justin Timberlake announced that he and Lupe Fiasco will join singer Kenna to become mountain climbers. The trio will together scale Mount Kilimanjaro to raise awareness for the clean water crisis.

According to the UK Guardian, the project was conceived by Kenna, who was born in Ethiopia. “My dad almost died as a child from waterborne diseases,” he explained to Elle magazine. “I have too many friends who would be concerned with the subject of clean water. Maybe I can help out.”

Leading up to the climb next fall, Timberlake, Fiasco, and Kenna will fundraise for the initiatives — and start training for the grueling 17,000 ft climb. “I’ve been training four times a week to get my VO2 [oxygen consumption] levels up to expand my lungs,” Timberlake told GQ. “We’ll climb for a week straight, carrying 30 pounds on our backs. It’s going to be intense.”

It’s also a bit risky: each year about 10 people die attempting to climb Kilimanjaro. As of yet, no specific clean water charities have been named as benefiting from the effort.
