SALT LAKE CITY — In an effort to raise money for cancer research, participants ran, walked and stepped 24 flights of stairs, sometimes multiple times on Saturday.
The Outclimb Cancer Challenge encouraged participants of all ages to not only race to the top, but keep track of the number of times they could make it up and back down the staircase at the Wells Fargo Center tower in a 6-hour period. All money raised, including registration fees, was given to ongoing cancer research at the Huntsman Cancer Institute at the University of Utah.
In all, 364 climbers involved in Saturday's event topped $32,000 in donations, doubling last year's event totals, and donations are still being collected throughout the week. For more information, visit outclimbcancer.kintara.org.
