Kevin Bacon joined around 100 people in hiking to the top of Pikes Peak in Colorado on Saturday, June 27, to raise money for the Love Hope Strength Foundation cancer charity.

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.”
