David Krupa02/07/09 Thank you Cara Negri and Jairo Blumenthal of Ossur North America for the donated Flex Run Foot. On March 29th ROMP athletes will particiapate in the ING Atlanta Marathon to raise awareness and funds for Range Of Motion Project.

The Flex Run Foot by Ossur is a high technology long-distance running foot made with carbon fibers and designed to provide the amputee athlete shock absorption, high enery responsiveness, and propulsion while running. ROMP CEO David Krupa will be running his first ever half-marathon in Atlanta using this donated foot and he is currently training in Quito, Ecuador. For more information check out www.ossur.com.

09/17/08   The Numbers are In
Thanks to everyone's participation in the 4th Annual ROMP Charity Golf Classic this year's event was a success.

Special thanks to all participants, sponsors and volunteers involved in event preparation.

Fundacion Hermano Miguel recently contracted ROMP field director, David Krupa, to help complete a government supported project to provide over 300 prosthesis in Ecuador.  The program serves the most needy patients located throughout the country and will be completed in 6 months.

07/07/07   College Park Industries Donates Prosthetic Feet
College Park, designers of high-technology multi-axial prosthetic feet, recently donated three brand-new feet for patients in Guatemala. This donation valuing more than $3000.00 will help husband and wife (Soila and Luis Chacon) to walk again after they both lost their legs in a motorcycle accident. THANK YOU COLLEGE PARK!

04/19/07   APC largest donation in history
American Prosthetic Components (APC) pledges largest donation in its history to ROMP field clinics.  January 2007, Brad Curtis - VP of APC sent hundreds of brand new endoskeletal connector components to Albermarle O&P for use in the Prosthetics for Ecuador Mission.  This donation of nearly $8000 allowed the Prosthetics for Ecuador team to fit 50 patients with new prosthetic limbs for the third consecutive year.  Thank You APC!  The mission would have failed without your help.
