Woolrich, the choice of adventurers and travelers for more than 180 years, has partnered with Daniel Dorr for the upcoming tour of his book, Kissing Kilimanjaro: Leaving it all on top of Africa.
The book chronicles Dorr's journey to the top of Kilimanjaro â€“ in which he succeeded in a Woolrich waterproof breathable jacket â€“ and the lessons learned along the way.
This fall Dorr will once again be wearing the brand that helped him achieve his goals, as he sets out on a book tour outfitted in Woolrich apparel.
â€œDaniel is an inspiration. He's just a regular, everyday guy with extraordinary vision,â€ said Jerry Rinder, Woolrich VP of Sales and Marketing.
In 2001, Dorr hatched the plan with his future wife, Lisa, to summit Kilimanjaro. The book follows Dorr on his adventure as he discovers the rewards of reaching for personal fulfillment through travel, physical challenge, and willingness to leave it all on the mountain.
â€œThe spirit of perseverance is alive and well in Woolrich, a 180 year old brand that's still relevant today,â€ said Dorr. â€œAnd their products are ideal for any level of adventure, from summiting Kilimanjaro to a luxurious rail trip through the Canadian Rockies.â€

Kissing Kilimanjaro is published by The Mountaineers Books and is available at Amazon.com and Barnes and Noble.
