Guess winning the Super Bowl just wasn’t enough to put Ray Lewis on top of the world. The former Baltimore Ravens middle linebacker set off to climb Kilimanjaro today, scaling the mountain alongside Doug Pitt, the younger brother of Brad, as part of a trip to raise money to promote clean water in Africa.

Lewis, who quit football last year after earning his second Super Bowl ring, is climbing the mountain with the TackleKili project, which supports World Serve International and Pros for Africa. Besides Lewis and Pitt, other team members on the trip include former Chicago Bear Tommie Harris, celebrity fitness expert Basheerah Ahmad, and actor Kyle Massey. According to USA Today, the group expects to reach the summit on Sunday.
