Former Football Player Ray Lewis Will Miss Out on Mt. Kilimanjaro Climb Due to Fever, Swollen Foot
Ray Lewis, former NFL player, and other high profile individuals, including Tommie Harris, a former Chicago Bears player, and Brad Pitt’s brother, Doug, have been planning a trip up Mount Kilimanjaro, not for their own amusement or gains, but for charity.
The charity they are climbing for is called TackleKili. TackleKili raises awareness and money for clean water projects going on in East Africa.
However, the number of climbers had to be reduced by one.
Apparently, after spending long hours participating in other charitable work (providing hearing aids to children) Lewis’ foot began to swell and he developed a fever. Lewis made the smart decision and opted out of climbing in such a condition. That doesn’t mean he didn’t help his team out, however. As TackleKili said in a statement to the Baltimore Sun, “Ray refocused his service… at a lower altitude.”
Hopefully, the swollen foot and fever will be better soon and Lewis can continue his charitable work.
Swollen feet can occur for many reasons and if you are suffering from a swollen foot or ankle, it is best to have it checked out by a doctor. It could be caused by something simple and easily treated, but swelling can also be a sign of serious health issues.
If you are having generalized foot or ankle pain that is persistent, it is also important to see a podiatrist. You shouldn't let foot swelling or pain go untreated. It is not normal.
