Local 8 Year Old to Climb Mt. Kilimanjaro! Eight-year-old Tyler Armstrong’s goal is to become the second youngest person ever to summit Mt. Kilimanjaro. Tyler, of Yorba Linda, Calif., is climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro to raise awareness and funds to find a cure for Duchenne muscular dystrophy. He already set a record as the youngest person to climb Mt. Whitney in California in a single day – the highest peak in the contiguous United States. While Tyler takes on the physical challenge of the climb from June 25 - July 2, 2012, he challenges others to donate a dollar to CureDuchenne for every foot he climbs.
