About the event:

This event is to raise awareness about stopping bullying and to encourage today's young people to prevent bullying from happening.  Justin Wren will be climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro with several other famous athletes in an effort to bring attention to his Pygmy family and to those who don't have a voice.  Currently, Justin is hoping to raise $2.00 for every step he takes up Kilimanjaro - that's 19,341 feet!

About Justin:

Justin Wren has spent much of his life fighting - from a stellar early wrestling career as National Champion to becoming a star UFC fighter. In his book, "Fight for the Forgotten," Wren shares how God shifted his focus from fighting against opponents in the cage to fighting for the "most bullied people in the world," the Mbuti Pygmies in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. 

Justin is known for his successful mixed martial arts career in the UFC. Early in his career, he appeared on the Spike reality show, "The Ultimate Fighter," cementing his reputation as a dominating force in the heavyweight division. His current record of 14-2 remains an impressive testament to his skill. 

But many are surprised to find this 6-foot-3-inch, 265-pound fighter has an even bigger heart. 

After discovering his faith following a six-year struggle with addiction and depression in his early career, Wren stepped away from MMA to find God's purpose for his life. 

In 2015, Wren returned to his winning ways in MMA fighting, but this time he is fighting for someone besides himself. 

"I still love MMA, and my work in the Congo didn't change that," he says. "But it did change me. I'm not fighting for myself anymore. I'm fighting to bring attention and change to my Pygmy family who don't have voice." 

Through his book, "Fight for the Forgotten," Wren is encouraging everyone to stand up for those who are bullied and persecuted and do not have a voice. He regularly speaks to raise awareness for the plight of the Pygmies and the hope that is available through the simple and affordable gift of clean water. Thirty-three percent of the book's author proceeds go directly to land, water and food initiatives in the Congo.
