Bristlecone Foundation Legacy Forest Planting

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
According to Joan David, organizer of the Summit Susan G. Komen Foundation, this year's Romp to Stomp raised almost $125,000, a significant increase over last year's $100,000.  Bristlecone Foundation was associated with this year's Stomp, along with KCMV radio and they donated seedlings to be planted as a part of the Legacy Forest, in honor of the Romp to Stomp participants.  You can help to plant those seedlings.

Here are the details:
Romp to Stomp Tree Planting Day
Join the Bristlecone Foundation, K-CMV Colorado's Mountain Voice and the Town of Frisco on June 5th to plant a special grove of seedlings on the Frisco Peninsula honoring the 2010 Romp To Stomp participants.  As these seedlings grow and flourish they will stand as a lasting legacy of courage, love and spirit. Tree planting starts at 8:00 a.m. and all volunteers are invited to a free BBQ lunch with musical entertainment at noon at the Dillon Marina.
So far more than 1,000 seedlings have been donated to the Bristlecone Foundation Legacy Forest campaign in memory, celebration or in honor of loved ones. Bring families and friends to participate in this historical event that will impact the county's reforestation efforts and at the same time support hospice and home healthcare patients in Summit County.
Frisco Peninsula - June 5
Meet at the Frisco Nordic Center, 18454 Highway 9, Frisco, CO 80443
8:00 - 11:30 a.m.

Participants should bring work gloves, hat, sunscreen, sunglasses, sturdy footwear and a filled water bottle.  All other tools and materials will be provided. BBQ lunch will be provided for all planting volunteers starting at noon at the Dillon Marina.
The Legacy Forest Campaign is on-going and donations will keep growing to ensure that our forests are renewed and that terminally ill and recovering home care patients in Summit County continue to receive high-quality healthcare at home from Bristlecone Health Services. 

Give a donation that keeps growing; plant a seedling in honor/celebration or in memory of a loved one.  Visit for more information about the Legacy Forest or call or email Åsa Armstrong at 970-668-8444,
