A British soldier left a triple-amputee after serving in Afghanistan reached new heights when he climbed Mount Kilimanjaro — to deliver a hamburger.

Corporal Andy Reid had his legs and right arm amputated in October 2009 after stepping on a improvised explosive device.

Every October since, the former soldier commemorates the life-changing incident by raising money for the organizations that helped him recover.

In 2022, he ascended the 19,341 feet up the Tanzanian mountain, representing his nonprofit, Standing Tall Foundation.

He also had his close friend Daniel Hodges and 22 other volunteer climbers along for the incredible feat.
