Aiming to top last year’s 4,150 participants and more than $200K contributed to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure and the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation, the Tubbs Romp to Stomp Out Breast Cancer Snowshoe Series is lining up seven events in North America for 2010. Anticipating another successful season, 2010 will mark Tubbs’s donation of more than a million dollars to the fight against breast cancer.
In the partnership of national sponsors such as Tubbs Snowshoes, Columbia Sportswear and Green Mountain Coffee, the Romp to Stomp, offers a fun, family-friendly way to get active this winter with a 3k or 5k snowshoe walk or a 3k snowshoe run in the USA and a 3k snowshoe walk or a 5k snowshoe run in Canada. Participants can choose from seven spectacular locations at New Jersey’s Mountain Creek Resort; Vermont’s Stratton Mountain Resort; Utah’s Mountain Dell Golf Course; Washington’s Summit at Snoqualmie Nordic Center, Ontario’s Scenic Caves, Oregon’s Mt Hood; or Colorado’s Frisco Nordic Center. The cost for early online registration is $25 per person or $40 for onsite registration, (available at most sites). Each event will feature goodie bags for all participants, a sweepstakes and a breast cancer survivor tribute, and a grand prize awarded to the single largest individual fundraiser.
“The Romp to Stomp Out Breast Cancer is a fabulous excuse to get outdoors in the middle of winter and raise money for a great cause at the same time” said Alyson Ruby, captain of Romp to Stomp team P-Ruby and a past series top fundraiser. “I didn’t really know what to expect when I became involved with the event in 2004 as a person who was very new to the sport of snowshoeing and had only recently become a part of a family battling breast cancer. Over the past two years as my family’s battle became bigger so did our team and our donations. It has been, and will continue to be, an honor to be a part of this wonderful event.”
