The Climb to Glory Fund’s mission is to accept and equitably disburse unsolicited donations made to Fort Drum, and to utilize them to benefit the Soldiers and Families stationed in Fort Drum, N.Y. The promotion is an extension of an already well-established relationship with the military base, as soldiers from Fort Drum have been involved in pre-race festivities at The Glen for years.
