Long and his "Conquering Kili" crew, a team comprised of U.S. military veterans and current and former NFL players (including former Eagle Connor Barwin), climbed the mountain to raise awareness for Long's charity, Waterboys. Long's nonprofit helps bring well water to East African communities. This was the third time Long made the 19,000-plus foot climb, which takes around six days to complete.

"The awareness for our cause, clean water in East Africa … this is our best platform," Long told Sports Illustrated's Peter King. "The world water crisis is huge, and it means so much to me that we've been able to raise enough money to build 32 wells in such desperate areas. We haven't set a monetary goal this year, but if we could raise enough money for three or four wells [at $40,000 per well], that's going to help so many people."

Here are Long and his team at the top of the mountain.
