Mercedes is Climbing for ROMP's 10th Anniversary!

I will be climbing for Range of Motion Project's (ROMP) 10th Anniversary! I'll be headed up Cayambe Peak in Ecuador (+19,000') to help raise funds for prosthetic care. Mobility is something that so many take for granted - walking to the grocery store, walking your dog, driving a car - but what happens when something unexpected takes that gift away? I want to help raise these dollars to provide mobility to all in need of assistance - and ROMP can make sure that those who don't have the means or access to prosthetics, do. I've been so fortunate to be able to trail run and climb my own mountains - now it's my turn to help others climb their mountains, whether they be physical challenges, mental barriers, or legitimately mountains.

Why I Climb

Climbing for ROMP is a metaphor for the mountains we all face. I'm proud to join the 10th annual Climbing for ROMP campaign and tackle my 'mountain' to help amputees get high-quality prosthetic care so they can take their first steps. 

Please consider donating to my page, joining the campaign, and sharing! Every dollar is 100% tax deductible and goes directly to ROMP's mission of ensuring access to high-quality prosthetic care for underserved amputees. 

We climb for equitable access to care.

We climb for change.

We climb for ROMP.
