"You may be a weekend warrior or a first-timer; it doesn't matter. That's the beauty of this event, all are welcome" says David Blasak of Tubbs Snowshoes. "It's an incredible feeling to organize something that brings friends and families close together for some good old-fashioned winter fun, during one of the coldest month of the year. Even better? To support a great cause too."
Since inception is 2008, the Tubbs Romp to Stomp Snowshoe Series has supported CBCF by raising over $200,000 to help fund innovative research, health education and advocacy programs. The Tubbs Romp to Stomp Snowshoe Series includes a: 3 km snowshoe race, 3km / 5km snowshoes walk and Lil Romper Dash (for the little ones and their families) which benefits the CBCF. This fun-filled day is an opportunity for Rompers of all ages to make some memories, enjoy the fresh air, and enter to win some great prizes - all with one goal in mind, and that is to support the breast cancer community.
"I'd like to thank Tubbs Snowshoes and all of the Rompers for supporting CBCF and helping to carry out our vision of creating a future without breast cancer," says Leigh Jasmine, Community Development Director at CBCF. "This year, we are also honoured to have breast cancer survivor, Hannah McEdwards with us as one of our speakers. Her story and spirit will light up the day, so break out your best pink winter gear, this is an event not to be missed."
