A benefit for the Gene Upshaw Memorial Cancer Center and Far West Nordic - Help Fight Cancer!
For many, this event has become a celebration of life following personal struggles with cancer or in memory of a loved one. 50% of funds raised from the Palisades Mountain Run are donated to The Tahoe Forest Health System Foundation to fund programs and services for cancer patients at the Gene Upshaw Memorial Tahoe Forest Cancer Center. These programs include items such as biofeedback, acupuncture, massage therapy, transportation assistance, clinical psychology, and exercise programs. These programs are funded solely through philanthropy and fundraising and are provided complimentary for patients and caregivers.
For the past 41 years, hundreds of runners and hikers have made the annual pilgrimage to the top of Palisades for this unique running event with stunning views of Lake Tahoe and the High Sierra. Starting at the base of Palisades Tahoe (6200’), the course climbs 3.6 miles up Mountain Run to High Camp (8200’) where awards, raffle, music, refreshments, and beer from FiftyFifty Brewery (must have ID) in Truckee are provided.
