Seattle, Wash. – Nikwax N.A. is a proud sponsor of the Tubbs Romp to Stomp Out Breast Cancer Snowshoe Series®. Romp to Stomp is a series of five, nationwide snowshoe events, benefiting the Susan G. Komen for the Cure®. Nikwax is an in-kind sponsor, with free samples in participants' welcome bags.

The Tubbs Romp to Stomp event is modeled after, and is the winter complement to, the successful Race for the Cure® run/walk events in summer. Since 2003, over 18,000 people have donned snowshoes and raised nearly $1.2 million for Susan G. Komen for the Cure®.

“On a very personal level, there are many of us at Nikwax whose loved ones have been impacted by breast cancer. We support the fight for the cure,” said Chas Fisher, president of Nikwax N.A. “On a company level, we make waterproofing products for home use, so it is paramount that we take every precaution with the safety of our ingredients. Many waterproofers contain perfluoroctyl (PFO) fluorocarbons, which can degrade into PFOA, an EPA-listed carcinogen. Nikwax products are 100-percent water-based. We do not use PFOs, and we take an uncompromising stance against the use of PFOs in the home environment, for the safety of the people using our product.”

The Romp to Stomp events began in late January in New Jersey, Vermont and Utah. Upcoming events will be held at Snoqualmie, Wash. (Jan. 20, 2010), Mt. Hood, Ore. (Feb. 27, 2010), and Frisco, Colo. (March 6, 2010). For more information, to participate, or to donate, please visit: www.tubbsromptostomp.com.
