Join Living Journeys on a hike to the top of Mt. Crested Butte (12,162 feet), and raise money to provide support, education and awareness to those living with cancer. The Crested Butte Summit Hike is a fund raising event to benefit people living with cancer and their loved ones. Money raised from the hike helps recipients pay medical bills and alleviate the stress of daily living expenses during their cancer treatments. The Summit Hike is hosted by Living Journeys, a non-profit organization. In 2010, Living Journeys contributed approximately $35,000 in counseling services and financial assistance to Gunnison County residents living with cancer.
