Stomp for Change

February 1, 2008

Being a kid was a pretty awesome gig. Snow days. Blissful oblivion to mortgage payments and diets. And knowing that when you stomped your feet, things happened.

While temper tantrums (at least full bodied ones) may be a thing of the past, a little foot stomping can still yield some cool benefits.

Like when you sign up to participate in Tubbs’ 7th annual Romp to Stomp out Breast Cancer snowshoe series. Benefiting Susan G. Komen for the Cure, the 2008 series is taking place in snowshoe friendly locations including Vermont, Utah, Oregon and Colorado.

All locations will host a 3K fun race or savor the scenery with a 3K or 5K leisurely snowshoe. You can sign up solo or spread the love and recruit a team. Collect pledges beforehand and be eligible for great giveaways. Collect the most and be rewarded with a snowshoe trip for two to the Canadian Rockies.

No snowshoes? Not a problem, there will be 350 pairs available to borrow for free, on a first come, first serve basis.

New to the sport? No worries, it’s literally a walk in a (snowy) park. With no learning curve, no flashy maneuvers, some may say it’s child’s play.
