Romp to Stomp 2013
By Stephanie Park

Here is a glimpse of the energy and enthusiasm that was prevalent at this year’s event:

On Saturday February 9th 2013 I gathered among an overwhelming crowd of four hundred people to rally for a future without breast cancer. Unfortunately we live in a world in which far too many people have been afflicted with, or are close to someone who has battled, breast cancer. Although this is a devastating reality, it was also a catalyst in unifying hundreds of people to raise money and awareness on the weekend.

Beginning at 9 am, the Scenic Caves Nordic Centre was tickled pink as bus loads of enthusiastic, tutu wearing snowshoers arrived for the annual event. The enchanting landscape, vivacious energy and warm sun molded together to create the absolute perfect day to get outdoors and make a difference.

If you would have asked me over a year ago what I knew of breast cancer or how it affected me or my family, I would have given you a blank stare. That was until my aunt was diagnosed with breast cancer. Just one difficult year later, Marg was able to take the stage at this annual event to share her story and to inspire many.

When I heard of the annual Romp to Stomp event at Scenic Caves, I immediately thought of Marg and rallied together a group to snowshoe in her honour. Team Marg raised nearly $600 for breast cancer research and snowshoed five kilometres of beautiful trails. Together, four hundred participants raised over $45,000! Every single stomp in the powdery snow brings us closer to a world without breast cancer as we continue to generate awareness and necessary fundraising.
