Romp to Stomp a huge success

The 8th annual Tubbs Romp to Stomp out Breast Cancer, held at the Frisco Nordic Center, March 6th was another huge success! Along with the blue skies we had almost 2,300 participants wearing big smiles and a lot of pink!

I would like to thank the many participants, volunteers, the Town of Frisco, the Frisco Nordic Center, the Summit School District and all of the businesses involved in making this year’s event a HUGE success! This event benefits the Denver Affiliate of the Susan G. Komen for the Cure which supports Summit County. Though the final numbers aren’t in as yet, it’s believed the event reached its goal of raising atleast $125,000, which is $25,000 over last year! That’s more than the other four Romps in the country raised in total.

The almost 2,200 registered participants enjoyed a morning of snowshoeing with family and friends, which included a 3k race, a 3 or 5k walk, a free pancake breakfast sponsored by Wells Fargo, entertainment by Nancy Cook, lots of raffles and prizes for the individuals and teams which raised the most money for Komen for the Cure. People came from many areas of Colorado, and beyond, to be a part of this awesome event.

Many thanks also go to our primary local sponsors who helped to pay the expenses of this event: Wells Fargo, KSMT/KCMV, Re/Max Real Estate, Comcast, Vail Summit Orthopedic, St. Anthony Summit Medical Center, Shaw Regional Cancer Center, Outlets at Silverthorne, RSN-TV, High Country Health Care, Colorado Summit Magazine, Vail Resorts, The Spa at Breckenridge, Christian Living Communities, Live for Living and Colorado Tents and Events. Without their help this event would not have been as successful. In addition, we had over 50 Frisco businesses which participated in the ‘Save the Ta-TAs Treasure Hunt’ and raised over $2,000. Thanks also to the over 160 volunteers who make this event happen! They did a fantastic job in ensuring this event ran smoothly. The Romp really pulls the community together for a common cause and that’s a wonderful thing!
