PEAK FM afternoon host COYOTE MCCLOUD broadcast live from the top of the mountain covering the event.
THE COLORADO SPRINGS GAZETTE quoted KEVIN BACON of the BACON BROTHERS, "One of the hardest thing's I've ever done" when asked about his 13-mile hike up the 14,110-foot PIKES PEAK,
Eighty-nine hikers raised money and joined the singers on their hike to the top of THE PEAK, raising close to $80,000. Proceeds from the event will support global cancer care and raise awareness about the NATIONAL BONE MARROW REGISTRY and THE LOVE HOPE STRENGTH FOUNDATION.
