The hikers each paid a $50 registration fee and each raised at least $1000 in donations to take part in the climb, and were treated to a special concert by the Bacon Brothers when they reached the top.
“This is not a race, this is to enjoy,” said Foundation Director Shannon Foley. “This is for all people who have been diagnosed with cancer. Take it slow. Enjoy the hike.”
The Bacon Brothers needed a puff of oxygen before launching into their set at the top of the 14,110-foot peak.
“It’s one of the hardest things I’ve ever done physically,” said Kevin Bacon. “The hike is inspirational, a combination of playing music and altitude.”
