Snowshoe event raises more than $40,000


Saturday’s Romp to Stomp Out Breast Cancer snowshoe event at the Frisco Nordic Center raised more than $40,000 for the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.The second annual event consisted of both a snowshoe fun run as well as an easy snowshoe walk and raised money from the participants’ pledges as well as direct donations. All the money raised will be given to the foundation to benefit breast cancer research, education and screening.More than 1,365 participants turned out. In between snowshoeing, they enjoyed a pancake breakfast and live entertainment by local musician Nancy Cook. “This community deserves to be recognized for their continued support of Susan G. Komen and the Romp to Stomp,” said Paul Adams, marketing program coordinator for Tubbs, the main event sponsor. “Summit County and the Front Range are unique and active communities, and we really do value their support.”It’s so inspiring to see so many people come snowshoeing to benefit such a great cause.” Tubbs expressed their thanks to sponsors Columbia Sportswear; Green Mountain Coffee; EMS; Wells Fargo; St. Anthony Summit Medical Center; Mychelle Dermaceuticals; Slifer, Smith, and Frampton Real Estate; Frisco Nordic Center; Town of Frisco; and MIX 100 for support.
