CBCF Ontario Region is proud to once again be the charitable partner of the 8th Annual TUBBS Romp to Stomp out Breast Cancer Snowshoe Series. Join us for an energetic morning of snowshoeing and celebration. The TUBBS Romp to Stomp Snowshoe Series includes a 3km snowshoe race, 3km/5km snowshoe walk and Lil Romper Dash (we've got something for all ages!).
Round up your friends and family, make memories, enjoy the fresh air, and possibly earn some great prizes; all to raise funds to support innovative breast cancer research, health education and advocacy programs.
WHEN: FEBRUARY 7, 2015
WHERE: SCENIC CAVES IN THE TOWN OF
BLUE MOUNTAINS (COLLINGWOOD)
"Since bringing this event to Canada in 2008, we have grown TUBBS Romp to Stomp into THE LARGEST SNOWSHOE SERIES IN THE WORLD, engaging 3,500+ people and raising over $273,000 for CBCF." says David Blasak of TUBBS Snowshoes Canada, "Our goal is to get Canadians outside during the winter months, a time when it's easy to become dormant and inactive. Healthy and active lifestyles are key factors in breast cancer prevention and what better way to be active in the winter than snowshoeing with your friends and family."
ABOUT 1/3 OF BREAST CANCERS CAN BE PREVENTED THROUGH LIFESTYLE CHANGES SUCH AS HEALTHY EATING, REGULAR EXERCISE, LIMITING ALCOHOL AND NOT SMOKING. A HEALTHIER BODY WEIGHT IS KEY AND THE BENEFITS OF BEING ACTIVE BEGIN AS SOON AS YOU START, NO MATTER HOW OLD YOU ARE.
"TUBBS Snowshoes Canada and all the Rompers have graciously supported CBCF and the work we do to help carry out our vision of creating a future without breast cancer," says Leigh Jasmine, Community Development Director at CBCF - Ontario Region. "And for that, we are truly thankful. Donations from events like these allow CBCF to continue to fund ground-breaking research and support and advocate for the breast cancer community."
Start now. Join us at the 8th Annual TUBBS Romp to Stomp. Where will TUBBS take you?
