They made it! Our intrepid team of City and Umbro staff have conquered Kilimanjaro - now's the chance to make your contribution.
Having achieved one target by climbing the highest mountain in Africa, our Kilimanjaro Challenge team are now aiming to hit the £20,000 mark for charity.
The total has already passed £16,000, with all donations being divided between Shoot for the Moon, the partnership between City and Sport Relief, and Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY).
CRY was chosen after two City Academy players were forced to retire from football at 15 after discovering they had life-threatening heart conditions.
We know how generous City fans are, and you can help the team reach the top in financial terms with your donation. Simply go to www.justgiving.com/mcfckilimanjaro now.
The seven-strong team all made it to the peak 19,340ft above sea level - climbing for seven days through rainforest, moorland, high desert and arctic wasteland to reach the summit.
So congratulations to Rachael Moss, Sarah Dymond, David Williams, Gareth Hughes, James Beaumont, Jim Turrell and Nick Power - and thank you in advance to City fans for your generosity.
