Frisco Romp to Stomp, 2010.
Snowshoe event has raised $469,000 since 2003
By Bob Berwyn
FRISCO — The white snows of the Frisco Nordic Center blossomed in a sea of pink Saturday as thousands of people joined in what’s billed as America’s largest snowshoe event — the Tubbs Romp to Stomp out breast cancer.
After a heart pancake breakfast, sponsored by Wells Fargo, groups of racers and walkers set out 3K and 5K races and walks, all to raise money for the Denver Metropolitan Affiliate of Susan G Komen for the Cure®.
The organization was founded in 1994, the year after the first Komen Denver Race for the Cure, to carry out the promise of our National organization — to save lives, empower people, ensure quality care for all and energize science to find the cures.
The goal for this year’s Romp to Stomp was $125,000. Since 2003, the event has raised a total of $468,968. See the photos after the break and check back, we’ll be updating the gallery the next few days with new photos.
