FORT MYERS, Fl. - Sunday, two Naples men got a touching sendoff from family and friends as they left for Mount Kilimanjaro.

The men are embarking on a nine day journey to climb Mount Kilimanjaro to raise money and awareness for a Naples non-profit aimed at helping women and children in need. 

Glen Schwesinger and Gordon Kellam set a goal to raise $50,000 and every penny will go the Shelter for Abused Women and Children in Naples.
