July 2018

Ten countries.

Twenty-five climbs.

One goal.

MOBILITY.

Climbing for ROMP exists to show the world that amputees are not disabled by a missing limb, but a missing prosthesis.

Climbing for ROMP started in 2015 and continues to grow. In its first three years, the event raised over $150,000, engaged hundreds of climbers around the world, and helped over 150 ROMP patients get access to prosthetic care.

In 2018, we are building off the success of the last three years and our goal is bigger! We are hoping to have 500 people worldwide join Climbing for ROMP this year to celebrate the 28th anniversary of the Americans with Disability Act. The signature climb will again take place in Ecuador, where some of the most elite physically challenged athletes from around the globe will be asked to participate in support of ROMP by attempting to summit Cotopaxi at 19,347ft. The goal of the well-promoted event will be to show the world the power of mobility, the importance of access to prosthetic care, and the international importance of legislation protecting rights for those with disabilities; all in the spirit of the ADA.
