14th Annual Summit for Life

Purchase your tickets here for all Summit for Life '19 weekend events: Race, Gondola Ride, and Wine & Dine.

RACE- *please note a $100 fundraising minimum is required per racer in addition to your ticket purchase. 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! 

The course up the mountain starts at the base of the gondola, up the Little Nell trail, then goes on to Bingo Slot, Spar Gulch and Deer Park, and finally up Silver Bell to reach the Summit.


GONDOLA RIDE- you can skip the uphill competition and still join the celebration! Once you've purchased a ticket below, upload the Aspen Mountain gondola beginning at 5:50pm. Adult tickets are available for those over 12 and child tickets availble for those under 12. 


WINE & DINE- Find out what CKF is truly all about by celebrating a weekend dedicated to giving life and joining us for Summit For Life's dinner event that kicks it all off. With incredible programming, attendees rave about the stories from donor recipients and real stories about all of the lives changed by a donor and how their story lives on long after them. The evening also has a specially curated menu as well as incredible wine pairings from Napa with Monticello Vineyards and margaritas from Suerte.

Story

THE CHRIS KLUG FOUNDATION- Founded in 2003 by liver transplant recipient and Olympic Medalist snowboarder Chris Klug, the Chris Klug Foundation (CKF) is dedicated to promoting lifesaving donation and improving the quality of life for donors, donor families, organ transplant candidates and recipients. CKF is passionate about sharing the message of donation, and educating people on the impact that one person can have on the lives of many others. More than 115,000 people are currently on waiting lists for organ transplants across the United States and on average 22 people die each day waiting for an organ. CKF is devoted to making a difference to those waiting for a second chance, and is working to help promote the message of organ donation. Through its grassroots initiative, Donor Dudes, CKF is also working with young people around the nation, providing donor awareness materials and information for Donor Dudes events on high schools and college campuses nationwide. People everywhere are touched by organ donation and transplantation, and it is our mission to help spread the word in a fun, engaging way. The Chris Klug Foundation (CKF) is a nationally recognized 501(c)3 nonprofit organization located in Aspen, Colorado. Please, make a decision to be an organ & tissue donor and be sure to share that decision with your family.
