Tubbs Snowshoes, a global leader in snowshoes and snowshoe outreach, wraps up a successful 12th Tubbs Romp to Stomp Out Breast Cancer Snowshow season in support of Susan G. Komen® and Canadian BreastCancer Foundation™. This winter, nearly 4,200 participants, including 270 breast cancer survivors, helped raise over $218,000 to stomp out breast cancer.
Established in 2003, the Tubbs Romp to Stomp snowshoe walk and
fundraiser encourages snowshoers of all ages to stay healthy and active during
the winter, while giving back to local communities.
Winter’s crisp air set the perfect stage for the Romp
season. This winter, Tubbs Snowshoes hosted five Romp to Stomp events across
North America in Vermont, Washington, Colorado and Ontario. Participants came
out with high energy, sporting festive pink tutus and costumes for a fun-filled
morning. This year, courses included a 3K or 5K snowshoe walk, a 3K snowshoe
race, and the Lil Romper Dash for kids 12-years-old and younger. All Romp
participants left knowing they made an impact in the fight against breast
inspiration and powerful ceremonies in honor of the hundreds of breast cancer
survivors that attended. Today, the Tubbs Romp to
Stomp has raised over $2.8 million dollars in North America for Susan G. Komen®
and Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation™. Between Romp sponsors,
partners, participants and donors, the snowshoe community will continue to grow
and raise more funds to find the cure(s) for breast cancer. Although the season
is complete, Rompers are eager to carry on their actions to fight against
breast cancer—one snowshoe step at a time.
