Chris Klug Foundations's Summit for Life

December 3, 2016

Aspen Mountain, Snowmass Village, CO

The 11th Annual Astellas Aspen Summit for Life Weekend! Our goal is to raise awareness about the importance of organ and tissue donation. By participating in Summit for Life, you help us spread that message and make a difference for the 121,000+ people waiting for a lifesaving organ transplant. Register for the race, make a donation, or tell a friend about our event. Together we are saving lives. In this exciting event, contestants race from the base of Aspen Mountain all the way to the top. They will climb 3,267 vertical feet – over 2.5 miles uphill and at night! Racers climb at their own pace using their own lighting and non-motorized equipment like Kahtoola Microspikes, climbing skins, or other gear. All physical abilities and ages are welcome to participate! When racers and supporters reach the summit, dinner will be provided by The Little Nell along with live music, a raffle with great prizes, and awards presented by liver recipient and Olympic Bronze Medalist Chris Klug. All participants will receive an amazing racer bag and top fundraisers and top racers will receive special prizes!

This event is the Chris Klug Foundation's biggest fundraiser and is vital to the success of its mission. Every dollar you raise can help us save lives.
