Mike Watson, faculty member in the fashion department at The Art Institute of Charlotte, will climb Mt. Kilimanjaro this July in support of North Carolina charity, Samaritan’s Feet.

Samaritan's Feet is a 501 (c)(3) organization that serves and inspires hope in children by providing shoes as the foundation to a spiritual and healthy life resulting in the advancement of education and economic opportunities. The July climb is a celebration of the organization’s 15th anniversary. Prior to the hike, Watson and fellow climbers will serve at a special shoe distribution for children living in Tanzania near Mt. Kilimanjaro.

Watson will don his Art Institute of Charlotte apparel as he ascends the mountain and plans to document the event on his Go Pro to share with the campus upon his return.
