BLM Sponsors Climb to Conquer Cancer on Muddy Mountain

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Casper Field Office is cooperating with the American Cancer Society in its fight against cancer. On June 27, 2009 the American Cancer Society will host the Climb to Conquer Cancer on Muddy Mountain located 20 minutes south of Casper, Wyo.

The Climb to Conquer Cancer is a unique, noncompetitive walk to raise awareness and funds to fight cancer. Participants will walk 5 miles up Muddy Mountain Road surrounded by the beautiful mountains and wild flowers of Wyoming. Walkers will be greeted on top of the mountain by a luau, lunch, and live entertainment at BLM’s Rim Campground.

“The BLM has been fantastic at providing support for this project. Together we are making a difference both in the community and in the fight against cancer" according to Rita Miller with the American Cancer Society.
There will be games, a luau costume contest, hula lessons, drawings and much more. Cancer survivors will be honored with a breakfast that will be held before the climb. Please contact the American Cancer Society for more information.

People interested in this event may send an email to, call Rita Miller at (307) 235-0044, or go to to register a team. Volunteers are always welcome and appreciated.

The BLM manages more than 245 million acres of public land, the most of any Federal agency. This land, known as the National System of Public Lands, is primarily located in 12 Western states, including Alaska. The BLM also administers 700 million acres of sub-surface mineral estate throughout the nation. The BLM's mission is to sustain the health, diversity, and productivity of America’s public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations. In Fiscal Year 2015, the BLM generated $4.1 billion in receipts from activities occurring on public lands.
