The Chris Klug Foundation’s 8th Annual Aspen Summit for Life Sponsored by Astellas will take place on December 6 & 7 in Aspen. This weekend of events to promote lifesaving organ and tissue donation is centered around a nighttime uphill race on Aspen Mountain. The Aspen Summit for Life weekend begins with Wine and Dine for Life in memory of Judith Hoffberger, an exquisite dinner complete with wine pairings from Failla Wines at the Sky Hotel. The evening continues with Party for Life at 39 Degrees Lounge which will feature drink specials, DJ May Fly, and the famous ice luge with Spring 44 Vodka. The main event will take place on Saturday where contestants will race from the base of Aspen Mountain all the way to the top! Racers climb 3,267 vertical feet - over 2.5 miles at night. At the summit, racers will enjoy a post-race lasagna dinner provided by The Little Nell, live music by The Mile Markers, prize giveaways, SocialLight Photobooth, and awards for top fundraisers and racers presented by liver recipient and Bronze medalist, Chris Klug. The Summit for Life event helps raise awareness about the importance of organ and tissue donation and living a healthy, active life post transplant. Visit www.summitforlife.org to learn more about the event, register to participate, or make a donation.
