The Tubbs Romp to Stomp Out Breast Cancer
Frisco, Colorado
March 6, 2010

Yesterday I photographed this fun and inspiring charity snowshoe race with Kay Beaton. It is an annual Susan G. Komen event sponsored by Tubbs snowshoes, where racers run or walk around the Nordic Center in Frisco, Colorado. About 2,200 racers turned up in pink clothing, costumes, wigs, or tutus, and raised over $80,000 for breast cancer research.All day I alternated between laughter and tears. What a brilliant way to raise money for charity and to show support for those affected by cancer. Also I want to take a moment to say for my millionth time that I love Colorado. It was such a great day yesterday.
