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 four years, the event raised over $250,000, engaged hundreds of climbers around the world, and helped over 300 ROMP patients get access to prosthetic care.
2019 is the 5th annual Climbing for ROMP event and we are going bigger and further than ever before. We are hoping to reach 50 summits the year and help 150 amputees along the way. 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.
