VERNON – Aiming to top last year’s record-breaking event which boasted 485 participants and more than $38,500 raised for the North Jersey Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure®, the Tubbs Romp to Stomp Out Breast Cancer Snowshoe Series® will return to Mountain Creek Ski Resort in Vernon, New Jersey on Saturday, Jan. 21, with snowshoes—and good will—in abundance.
The Tubbs Romp to Stomp Snowshoe Series brings snowshoers of all levels and ages together to raise money in support of breast cancer education and research. As North America’s largest snowshoe series, Romp to Stomp has raised over $1.8 million for the fight against breast cancer since its inception in 2003. “We are really excited to be returning to Mountain Creek,” said Lisa Gallipoli, executive director of the Komen North Jersey Affiliate. “This is such a unique event, and it’s always a thrill to see our Rompers covering the mountain in a sea of pink feather boas and tutus as we all come together to stomp out breast cancer—one snowshoe step at a time!”
The New Jersey Romp at Mountain Creek will offer a true mountain-top experience, a magnificent snowshoe course, and a festive and fun day. Romp participants will ride the Cabriolet Lift to the top of the mountain, where they’ll strap on their snowshoes and stomp their way down—and perhaps bring us just a snowy step closer to a world without breast cancer. Participants at the Mountain Creek Resort event will be able to choose from a 3k or 5k snowshoe walk, or a 3k snowshoe race. Never snowshoed before? No problem. Nearly 45% of New Jersey Romp participants have never been on snowshoes, and Tubbs provides free demo snowshoes (on a first-come, first-served basis).
The festivities start with registration at 9 a.m. Saturday morning, at Mountain Creek’s Vernon Peak Base Lodge, and ends at 1 p.m. For more information, to register for the Tubbs Romp to Stomp Out Breast Cancer Snowshoe Series, or to learn more about sponsoring or supporting the event, visit www.tubbsromptostomp.com/nj.
