The five Romp to Stomp events in 2009 were a tremendous success offering a positive first-time snowshoeing experience to more than 2,200 people. Although economic conditions contributed to lower fundraising totals at each event, Tubbs kept event operations expenses low, ensuring that more registration fees and event income went to Susan G. Komen than ever before. From an operational standpoint, we also introduced a handful of successful programs such as Priority Check-In’s and the Colorado Romp carpool initiative, to increase the quality of experience for participants and develop a firm foundation for continued growth in 2010 and beyond.

{Tales from the Romp}Survivor from Illionis Rocks Mt Hood, Oregon
April 1, 2009

Beth Winter was celebrating many things when she strapped on snowshoes for her fourth Romp to Stomp event at Mt. Hood, Oregon. Of Course, celebration was in order for her daughter who turned 30 that same day and for winning a Tubbs Snowshoe package as the top individual fundraiser for the event, but Beth was also celebrating something much more profound—the mere feat of being alive.

 

After accepting her prize at the awards ceremony, she took the microphone and could hardly hold back tears of appreciate for Tubbs, friends and family and for organizations like Susan G. Komen who supported her in her fight to become a breast cancer survivor—not a statistic.
