Climbing For ROMP - A special initiative for the Range Of Motion Project
We are climbing to create change.
We are climbing to promote mobility for all individuals regardless of financial ability.
We are climbing for ROMP!
Members of the Champaign-Urbana and UIUC community will come together for at trail walk at Allerton Park on Saturday July 23rd as we celebrate our mobility and raise awareness about access to prosthetic and orthotic care. All ages and ability levels are welcome! There will be options for a one, three, five, and seven mile hike. Stay tuned for more details!
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.
