KUSA - Players from the ranks of the women's pro racquetball tour, as well as top-rated local competitors and enthusiasts, will be on hand at the Highlands Ranch Northridge Rec Center and the Littleton YMCA on Feb. 8 and 9 for the 14th annual "Racquet for the Cure" tournament to benefit the Denver affiliate of Komen for the Cure.
Marcia Richards, President of the Colorado Racquetball Association and event organizer, visited 9News to talk about the event. To see Marcia's interview with Susie Wargin, visit the video player above.
Founded in Denver, the original "Racquet for the Cure" format was developed as a grassroots, women-only racquetball program to bring new players to the game, while supporting the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation's efforts to find a cure for breast cancer.
The first event raised $200 and has raised more and more money each year. In all, over $80,000 has been given to Komen for the Cure.
There is also a tournament for the men (they saw how much fun the women were having!).
