TUCSON - The American Cancer Society's 29th annual Climb to Conquer Cancer of Tucson is a non-competitive hike to the summit of “A” Mountain. Participants of all ages and abilities, including hikers, runners, wheelchairs and strollers, all make their way up to the top of “A” Mountain, approximately a 3.1-mile distance. The event concludes with a fun festival full of activities, food, and entertainment for all ages.
The fun begins at 7 a.m. on Saturday with registration at Pima Community College West Campus and continues through noon at the top of “A” Mountain. Registration is $40.
Funds raised during the Climb to Conquer Cancer of Tucson help support free programs and services for cancer patients in southern Arizona like Look Good Feel Better, Road to Recovery, Cancer Resource Centers and more, as well as ground breaking research. There are currently eight cancer research grants in the state of Arizona funded by the American Cancer Society totaling more than $5.6 million dollars.
