Summit For Life 

The Chris Klug Foundation invites you to join us for the 2023 Summit for Life and help us celebrate the 18th Annual "Kickoff to Winter" in Aspen, CO! 

Saturday, December 9 | Aspen Mountain

Summit for Life is a nighttime uphill race up Aspen Mountain, and one of the biggest fundraisers of the year for the Chris Klug Foundation (CKF). Our mission is to raise awareness of the lifesaving gift of organ, eye, and tissue donation. By participating in Summit for Life (S4L), you are helping us spread this message, and make a difference for the 104,000 people awaiting a transplant in the United States today.

Summit for Life:

Participants will meet in Gondola Plaza at the base of the mountain at 5pm MT, and begin racing at 5:30! Hike, skin, or snowshoe your way up the 3,267 vertical feet to the top of Aspen Mountain, in the heart of the Rocky Mountains, in beautiful Aspen, Colorado.

The post-race party is held at the Sundeck Restaurant! Once you've made it to the summit, join us inside and enjoy dinner provided by The Little Nell, live music, and an awards ceremony where we will announce our 2023 Michael Wells Inspirational Award. We'll also be presenting our top fundraisers and top race finishers with their (much-deserved!) awards.
