We thank Kara Richadrson Whitely for her inspiring and empowering story and for mentioning JunoActive by Junonia on her tour and interviews. Kara wore JunoActive clothing on her epic hikes and we could not be more proud. Way to go, Kara!
Kara Richardson Whitely has hiked Mount Kilimanjaro three times while weighing as much as 300 pounds. Why three times? Because sometimes that’s what it takes to get over something.
Gorge, her inspiring book about the experience, has been published by Seal Press and Kara plans to take her book on tour with several book signing and book reading dates. Called one of "Five Fabulous, Possibly Life-Changing Books" by Redbook magazine. And Backpacker magazine said Kara's story as a plus-size adventurer is "as inspiring as it is refreshing."
