Registration Now Open for Romp to Stomp Events Nationwide

 SEATTLE. Wash. – December 2, 2013 – The Tubbs Romp to Stomp Out Breast Cancer Snowshoe Series®, proudly presented by Tubbs Snowshoes, invites snowshoers of all abilities and ages to come and be a part of the largest snowshoe series in North America. Registration has opened for the Colorado, Vermont, Washington, and Ontario events. The Romp to Stomp series has raised 2.57 million dollars for Susan G. Komen ® and the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation™ since its inception in 2003.

Romp to Stomp participants come from all walks of life, from kiddos to grandparents and from the first time showshoer to the weekend warrior; yet everyone who participates shares one goal—to stomp out breast cancer.

Romp to Stomp snowshoe courses include a 3k or 5k snowshoe walk, or a 3k snowshoe race. Participants will have the opportunity to try out Tubbs Snowshoes along the beautiful and well-marked courses. The Tubbs Romp to Stomp encourages families to get involved with their Lil Romper program, by offering a discounted registration fee for kids ages 6-12, free registration for Lil Bitty Rompers 0-5, and the Lil Romper Dash for Rompers 12-years-old and under. Each event will also have goody bags for all participants, give-aways, a fun-loving mascot, and prizes for top fundraisers and racers.

The Romp to Stomp encourages each participant to raise at least $100 to help provide breast health screenings, treatment and services to underserved women in their communities as well as fund global breast cancer research. To help participants reach their fundraising goals, the Romp provides fundraising tips, tools, prizes and incentives on their website.
