A passionate climber, Caroline Leon was left unable to walk after a terrible climbing accident. But this did not deter her – and she began the arduous journey of learning to walk again. Soon, she was scaling mountains again!

She is now embarking on her second attempt at a Guinness World Record as she plans to climb seven volcanic summits across seven continents.

"We are so proud to be in her corner, supporting her during this journey! Caroline, your strength and determination is an inspiration to us all, commented DHL.

Taking on the world's biggest challenges

Caroline has always loved the outdoors, and a fitness lifestyle but, in 2015, Caroline suffered a devastating climbing accident. Doctors said she would never walk again. Yet, 14 surgeries and 23 blood transfusions later, Caroline began the slow journey back to full mobility. 

Now, Caroline is taking on one of the world’s biggest physical and mental challenges: climbing seven volcanic summits across seven continents in six months.

Supporting Caroline's dedication and passion

DHL is committed to supporting individuals with extraordinary abilities in various fields, which is why DHL is proud to sponsor Caroline's seven-summit challenge.

This isn't the first time DHL has partnered with Caroline. In 2019, DHL provided logistics and on-ground support to Caroline as she attempted to climb 15 of the highest peaks in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region, totaling around 40,000 meters in height, in just 30 days. 

For DHL, Caroline is an inspirational woman with tremendous dedication and passion. Caroline represents DHL’s core values, including speed, passion, a pioneering spirit, and a never-say-die attitude in the face of adversity.
