Stomp Out Breast Cancer
547 // March 7, 2009
The annual snowshoe fundraiser event – Tubbs Romp to Stomp out Breast Cancer – took place in Frisco, Colorado this morning. Our “Team Lima Bean” set out early in search of the pancakes that were offered to all participants. The bus took us from Summit High School right by Breckenridge to the Frisco Nordic Center, where the events took place.
There was a cap of 2,000 participants that could register – we were told later that about 2,200 showed up and they extended that cap. We did the 5k walk, while others did the actual 3k race. The trail looks and was crowded, but the energy of every single person was exhilarating.
We walked elbow-to-elbow and snowshoe-to-snowshoe with supporters and survivors of all kinds. All fighting for the same cause, together. Have goosebumps yet?
It was a great experience and we had a lot of fun – this is my very strong and amazing mother-in-law. She is entering her 6th and final chemo treatment this Wednesday, and she is as beautiful as ever! Go Team Lima Bean – can’t wait until Tubbs Romp to Stomp 2010.
