Summit for Life is a nighttime uphill race and fundraiser for the Chris Klug Foundation. Our mission is to raise awareness about the importance of organ & tissue donation. By participating in Summit for Life, you help us spread that message and make a difference for the 113,000+ people waiting for a life-saving organ transplant. Register for the race, make a donation, tell a friend, or most importantly register to become an organ donor! Together we are saving lives.

Summit for Life is truly a weekend celebration of our mission starting with Wine & Dine, an intimate dinner at 7908Aspen on Friday evening, December 6th. Saturday, December 7th’s main event is the nighttime uphill race followed by a fun dinner, band and awards show on top of the mountain. Please explore the site to learn more about this life-changing event.
