Aitch to climb Mount Kilimanjaro for Down's Syndrome Association

28 May 2024, 16:30 | Written by Tyler Damara Kelly

BRIT Award-winning rapper and DSA Ambassador Aitch has announced that he will climb Mount Kilimanjaro in January 2025 for the Down’s Syndrome Association.

Aitch will be joined by his dad and members of his team, with the aim to raise £70,000 by completing the once in a lifetime challenge.

The idea came about after Aitch’s younger sister Gracie said he needed to do something “madder than jumping out a plane”. Last year, Aitch completed a 15,000-ft skydive to celebrate World Down Syndrome Day and Down’s Syndrome Awareness Week. Aitch raised over £50,000 for the Down’s Syndrome Association and continues creating awareness about a cause close to his and his family’s hearts.

Aitch became a DSA Ambassador in 2022 after generously contributing to the charity through the budget of his music video for "My G" featuring Ed Sheeran. The song from his debut album, Close To Home, is dedicated to his younger sister Gracie, affectionately known as ‘G’, who has Down’s Syndrome. The video was filmed in DSA’s beautiful Normansfield Theatre at their Langdon Down Centre.
