Get your hiking boots on, as this Saturday is the 4th Annual Summit for Life 2009 Uphill Celebration in Aspen, which benefits the Chris Klug Foundation. Saturday night is the night-time uphill snowshoe race, and the first 350 registrants will receive a free pair of Kahtoola FLIGHTboots.  Racers will climb 3,267 vertical feet from the base of Aspen Mountain to the Sundeck, which is over 2.5 miles.  There is a $40 fee to register before the day of the race, and $50 to register the day of the race.  The Chris Klug Foundation was founded in 2004 by liver transplant recipient and Olympic snowboarder Chris Klug, and promotes lifesaving organ donation.
