Seth Troxler world renowned DJ and producer, is taking on a slightly more challenging next step (no puns intended!) and climbing Mount Kilimanjaro to raise money for Cure Brain CancerOn 15th July, Troxler will ditch his decks for hiking boots and take on one of the world’s most challenging mountain treks as part of Professor Charlie Teo’s Million$Mission.

Along with another nine others, they aim to raise $1m AUD (approx £505k) each with a personal goal of at least $100,000

On the 15th July this year, however, Troxler is switching decks for hiking boots and taking on one of the most challenging mountain treks. As a part of leading neurosurgeon Prof  Charlie Teo’s Million$Mission, Troxler, along with another with 9 inspirational entrepreneurs, will together complete the climb and aim to raise a tremendous AUD$1 million, each with a personal goal of $100,000.

Seth Troxler, known for his weird and wonderful personality and eclectic music taste, has played at the world’s most renowned and respected clubs while also running his own labels Play It Say It, Soft Touch and Tuskegee, each focusing on a different genre of music. Music aside, he also runs his own restaurant brand Smokey Tails which has just taken over the kitchen of Hoxton Bar and Kitchen in Shoreditch.

He has decided to team up with the Cure Brain Cancer  Foundation who are leading the way in brain cancer research as well as increasing advocacy and awareness in Australia and, in turn, the rest of the world. The $1 million raised will be donated to Cure Brain Cancer Foundation to help back their mission to increase five-year survival from the current 20 per cent to 50 per cent by 2023.

With a summit of 5,896 meters above sea level, Mount Kilimanjaro proves to be the world’s highest free-standing mountain. The rapid change of altitude makes this climb one of the most challenging but it is nevertheless one of the most beautiful with varying landscapes from lush rainforests to alpine deserts to glaciers.
