Seth Troxler is a world renowned DJ and producer, playing the most highly regarded and respected clubs around the world. Troxler's constant touring resulted in him being subsequently voted number three, two, then one in the Resident Advisor Top 100 DJs poll from 2009–2012.

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 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.
