2019 is the 5th annual global Climbing for ROMP event. All money raised will go directly to helping ROMP patients get the prosthetic care they need to get mobile again. We are changing lives and empowering individuals one prosthetic limb at a time.
The Elite Team includes both amputee and non-amputee athletes. We will embark on a 10-day expedition in the Ecuadorian Andes including: six days of hiking/climbing, a high altitude acclimation process including two volcanoes (Ruco Pichincha–15’638 ft and Rumiñahui–15’651 ft), and culminating with an attempt at the summit of Cotopaxi (19,347ft), the second tallest peak in Ecuador. These three peaks total 50,636 ft and will be three summits towards our goal of 50 summits with our global community in 2019.
The goal is to prove that amputees are not disabled by a missing limb but a missing prosthesis and to help raise funds for ROMP patients in need.
ROMP’s mission is to provide high quality prosthetic care in underserved populations, which enhances mobility and unlocks human potential. We know that if you have access to the right technology, no summit is too far.
WE ARE CLIMBING VERTICAL FEET TO PROVIDE PROSTHETIC FEET TO OUR PATIENTS!
