    Justin Timberlake, Kenna and Lupe Fiasco have agreed to climb Mount Kilimanjaro sometime this fall. According to MTV.com, the 19,000-foot trek is meant to raise awareness of the worldwide water crisis.

    "My dad almost died as a child from waterborne diseases in Ethiopia, and he had talked to me about digging a well there," Kenna told Elle, "and I thought, 'I have too many friends who would be concerned with the subject of clean water. Maybe I can help out.'"

    All three artists are currently training for their climb, to prepare themselves for the lack of breathable oxygen in such a high altitude, low temperature climate. Timberlake, for one, told GQ, "I've been training four times a week to get my [oxygen consumption] levels up to expand my lungs. We'll climb for a week straight, carrying 30 pounds on our backs. It's going to be intense, but it's [also] going to be so rewarding."
