                participants, a raffle and a survivor tribute, and a grand prize will be awarded to the
                single largest individual fundraiser.


                "The Romp to Stomp Out Breast Cancer is a fabulous excuse to get outdoors in the
                middle of winter and raise money for a great cause at the same time,” said Alyson
                Ruby, captain of Romp to Stomp team P-Ruby and a past series top fundraiser. “I
                didn't really know what to expect when I became involved with the event in 2004 as a
                person who was very new to the sport of snowshoeing and had only recently
                become a part of a family battling breast cancer. Over the past two years as my
                family's battle became bigger so did our team and our donations. It has been, and
                will continue to be, an honor to be a part of this wonderful event."
