In 2014, the event sold out in 13 hours and raised $2.42 million for blood cancer research and patient services. Registration for the 2015 Big Climb sold out in 9 hours and raised a record-breaking $2.92 million! Big Climb 30 sold out in a record-breaking 8 hours and raised an incredible $2.74 million.
