We are climbing to create change
We are climbing to promote mobility for all individuals regardless of financial ability
We are climbing for ROMP!
ROMP is a global non-profit/for-impact healthcare organization dedicated to providing prosthetic and orthotic care to those without access to these services.
ROMP believes that prosthetic limbs and orthotic braces are not simply medical devices, but instruments of personal empowerment. Individuals are not disabled because of a missing limb, but rather a missing prosthesis.
Join us as we attempt to climb 25 mountains in 15 worldwide locations. We are asking individuals to use their abilities to create mobility for others. These climbs aim to raise $50,000 to provide prosthetics to those that need them most.
Join ROMP and Paralympic athlete and ROMP Board Member, Sandy Dukat, as we make our way up the windy and steep face of Mt. Bierstadt. Standing at 14,065′, this majestic peak will provide enough challenge to make you grateful for your mobility, but not so much that you want to call your mom crying.
The hike will take approximatley five hours round trip. We will leave from the main parking lot at 7 am, in order to summit before the afternoon clouds and storms come rolling in. Some previous hiking experience is necessary.
In order to successfully climb this mountain, you will need the following:
Hat, lots of sunscreen, lots of snacks, lots of water, sunglasses, gloves (for the scramble at the top), several layers, long pants, sturdy hiking shoes that are water resistant, and a great attitude.
Walking sticks or ski poles are recommended for support.
Come prepared to enjoy great company and great conversation!
