Climbing for ROMP exists to show the world that amputees are not disabled by a missing limb, but a missing prosthesis.
On July 26th, 2015, the Range of Motion Project (ROMP) hosted the First Annual Climbing For ROMP; a worldwide event, which engaged hundreds of climbers on six continents, 13 countries, and 22 mountains across the globe. Since then, we have raised over $150,000 for patients in need of prosthetic care and hosted over 100 climbs on all 7 continents.
In 2018, we are building off the success of the last three years and our goal is bigger! We are hoping to have 1,000 people worldwide join Climbing for ROMP. The signature climb will again take place in Ecuador, where some of the most elite athletes from around the globe will participate in support of ROMP.
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. By climbing you will be giving someone access to their mobility.
You can climb ANYWHERE around the world.
