Showshoe Series Works to Stomp Out Breast CancerThe Breast Cancer Site
A cold-weather racing event is taking place with a goal to stomp out breast cancer. The 12th annual Tubbs Romp to Stomp series is a traveling winter sports event making stops in Colorado, Vermont, Washington and Ontario. Funds raised from the event will go toward various breast cancer organizations, including the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.
Attendees will enjoy a day full of family-friendly activities including snowshoe trails, photo booth sessions and free breakfast. Additionally, there are a few races taking place, such as 3,000- and 5,000-meter snowshoe walks, a 3,000-meter snowshoe race and a lil' romper dash for the kids. If you don't have snowshoes, the snow footwear manufacturer Tubbs will provide some on a first-come, first-served basis.
The Denver Romp to Stomp is taking place in late February and the last event in the series will be held on March 9 in Ontario.
During these snowshoe events, participants dress in their best pink gear to support the cause. Some don matching tutus while others wear hot pink wigs. Since the event's inception, more than 19,000 people have participated in the Romp to Stomp in Colorado alone.
