Snowshoe for the Cure, Frisco
The name may have changed, but Snowshoe for the Cure is still the same funky intersection of pink, happy and hope you have become used to over the years. Susan G. Komen Colorado has partnered with the Town of Frisco’s Nordic Center to continue the tradition of snowshoe fun and community spirit which has raised over 1 million dollars since its inception to fight breast cancer. Susan G. Komen Colorado has always been a partner of this event, but for the 2nd year they are bringing their own passion and considerable love of events to Frisco as a full-fledged event organizer.
