NY Mets pitcher R.A. Dickey threw caution to the wind and climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro to raise awareness for sex trafficking.

For a man whose career depends on being healthy and without injury, taking on such a difficult task for a cause is truly inspiring. According to Huffington Post, management even told him that they would void his contract if he got injured on the climb.

Why risk it? The baseball player told CNN, “The thought of my own daughters being exposed to the atrocities that happen in Mumbai, in the brothels, and through sex slavery over there just was heartbreaking…and so I felt almost criminal not trying to use any platform that I had to raise awareness for a cause that is incredibly worthy.”

Happily, the pitcher made it home safely, and so far has raised $89,104 for Bombay Teen Challenge, an organization that fights human trafficking in India. There is still time to give. Check out Dickey’s crowdrise site to find out more.
