Summit Middle School held their annual Tiger Trot 5K on Friday, bringing in more than 700 kids and staff for the fundraiser. The race, which is held on the Frisco recpath behind the school, is held to encourage fitness and help raise scholarships for high schoolers.

“It’s been going on for years and years,” said Lake Dillon Fire-Rescue Public Information Officer Steve Lipsher. “They encourage kids to get outside and be active.”

Lake Dillon firefighters came out to Friday’s event to help distribute water, cheer on runners and provide medical service.

“It’s a long running tradition. We typically volunteer to stop in case anyone gets injured and to lend moral support to the kids,” Lipsher said.
