Mount Kilimanjaro lecture 7 p.m. Monday

Matt Leggett will present a slide show and lecture about his climb to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro starting at 7 p.m. Monday in the gallery at the Richland Public Library, 955 Northgate.

Leggett made the climb to the 19,341-foot African peak in August with his oldest brother Mark, who lives in Burien, and five other Washington climbers.

He made the climb not only for the thrill of cresting a peak higher than Mount Rainier, but also to raise money for the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center. Leggett raised $15,000 in pledges.
