The 2017 OutClimb Cancer Challenge is a thrilling 24-story stair climb to the top floor of the Wells Fargo Center. It's a test of speed (a chip-timed event) and endurance (total number of climbs to the top). This unique experience is completely a philanthropic endeavor organized by a team volunteers for the benefit of the Huntsman Cancer Foundation. 100% of the funds raised above event costs (which are covered by the registration fee) will go to research at the Huntsman Cancer Institute. During the first three years of the OutClimb Cancer Challenge we raised over $90,000 for cancer research! Please sign up today!
