On July 22, 2017 I will join my friends of ALL abilities to climb for mobility. Whatever your mountain, climb on! Check out WHY I climb below!
For as long as I can remember. My family has been supporting the Range of Motion project. Partly because someone very near and dear to us started this incredible organization...but even more so because of the impact that ROMP has. For those of you that don't already know, I am currently attending California State University Dominguez Hills Orthotics and Prosthetics program to pursue my masters degree. This summer I returned to Zacapa, Guatemala to give back to the very organization that helped me get to where I am today.
I wanted to share with you a little piece of my story, so you can see just how much of an impact your help can make! In March of 2014, my mountain became taller. After an unexpected car accident, I found myself climbing mountains every single day to overcome each and every challenge I was presented with. I began to evaluate my future and the things that truly made me happy. About a year and a half ago, I had the opportunity to go to Zacapa, Guatemala with an incredible group of individuals to help provide mobility to those in need. For the first time in a very long time, I felt like I was truly climbing higher. I had finally found my passion and began applying for graduate programs in Orthotics and Prosthetics.
Together, we can make mobility happen. I invite you all to give in any capacity that you can. I would love to have you all join me in making mobility happen here in the community and around the world. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out. If you would like to start a climb in your area, physically or metaphorically....please reach out to me as well.
