DENVER, CO – Oct. 11, 2022 / ENDURANCE SPORTSWIRE / — The Range of Motion Project (ROMP) is thrilled to announce that it has been selected as a recipient of the Gnarly Nutrition Fuel for Life grant. ROMP was chosen as the winner from over 150 submissions and received the grand prize of $12,000 based on the organization’s ongoing mission to provide prosthetic care to the underserved and raise awareness about the unequal distribution of prosthetic devices. worldwide support. Gnarly’s funding will be applied to the continuation of the annual “Climbing for ROMP” campaign – which this year involves the summit of Cotopaxi, Ecuador’s second highest volcano. Through the campaign, ROMP is working to raise $150,000 that will fund high-quality prosthetic care and services for 100 ROMP patients; ROMP plans to use the Gnarly grant to cover some of their team’s costs for their global Cotopaxi campaign. In addition to funding, the ROMP team will also receive Gnarly products to use at the Cotopaxi summit and training.
“ROMP really exemplifies the core value of Gnarly, which is to push your possible,” said Chief Marketing Officer Liz Esche. “The Cotopaxi Summit is a great example of this, and Gnarly is grateful to partner with such an incredible organization and help support this year’s Climbing for ROMP campaign.”
Cotopaxi Climbing Team
The flagship event annually brings together a group of adapted athletes and disability rights advocates from North and South America, including ROMP patients, to scale the 19,347-foot Cotopaxi volcano in Ecuador. The 2022 team includes cancer survivor and para-triathlete Kyle Stepp, professional trail runner Zach Friedley, three-time Paralympic gold medalist Brenna Huckaby and many more. The mission is to show the world that with access to the right technology, no mountain is too high. While the Cotopaxi Climb 2022 team is in Ecuador, everyone is invited to join in solidarity with the team and get moving for ROMP patients.
