This is the story of ROMP’s 4 year journey to the summit of Volcán Cotopaxi, Ecuador’s 2nd highest peak at 19,347 ft.
Each year, as part of the Range of Motion Project’s event Climbing for ROMP, a diverse team of amputee and non-amputee athletes set out to attempt a volcano in Ecuador to show the world the power of mobility. It was our original intention to climb Cotopaxi in 2015 but the volcano erupted and was closed until late 2017. In September 2018, we finally got our chance to summit. Over 500 others around the world climbed in solidarity, raising over $100,000 to help 100 ROMP patients get access to high quality prosthetic care.
We climb for change.
We climb for mobility.
We climb for ROMP.
