Chris Bredt is exceptionally committed to CODE. As a previous Chair of CODE’s Board and current Director for the CODE Foundation Board, he undertook to organize CODE’s Kili Climb and the Summit for Literacy in 2006. Since that time, he has led each and every climb (2006, 2010 and 2014) and will lead his fourth in 2018. In addition to his strongly held belief in the fundamental importance of the value of literacy and education, Chris was further inspired to visit CODE’s programs in both Tanzania around the time of a climb as well as with CODE’s Seeing is Believing Tour which travelled to Ghana to witness and engage first hand with programming in that country.

One of Chris' great claims related to the Summits for Literacy is having seen each climber summit Kili! You could be next?
