Mark Foster has completed his bid to climb Mount Kilimanjaro, raising awareness for clean water charities in the process. The Foster the People star appears in a new video recorded on the top of the mountain along with singer Kenna, who spearheaded the Summit on the Summit campaign, which brings celebrities to mountain peaks for charity.

In the video, Foster says the altitude on the summit was catching up with him:

"I'm definitely feeling slow. I'm always in the back of the pack, like, 'Guys, wait for me,'" he jokes.

Foster joins a host of other celebs that have climbed the famed peak, including Jessica Biel, Emile Hirsch and rapper Lupe Fiasco.

"Bono has always been my main source of inspiration," says Kenna of her political activism. "I can't say I agree with everything Bono has done in history, but I do believe his focus has always been of great intent. He's always speaking to a feeling and not necessarily to a definitive action that needs to be pursued on a political level."
