Hike Mount Sherman 14er, raise cash for prosthetic nonprofit on July 23
July 19, 2017
This time around, make summiting a 14er your second objective of the day.
On July 23, Ibex Outdoor Clothing joins forces with The Range of Motion Project, dubbed ROMP, to host a benefit climb up Mount Sherman on July 23 in commemoration of the 27th anniversary for the Americans with Disabilities Act, according to a release from Ibex. The climb is open to the public and hikers of all abilities. To join, register at the Crowdrise event page (Crowdise.com/ibex). The $40 registration fee is a donation to ROMP and Ibex will include a free pair of wool hiking socks for every registered participant.
"ROMP's motive is fueled by the cause that individuals are not disabled because of a missing limb, but because of a missing prosthetic device," said ROMP's Director of Events and Outreach, Lauren Panasewicz, in the release. "Our goal to climb Mount Sherman is to generate more awareness around this important cause that can directly help so many in need, not only in America, but worldwide."
The ADA is a civil rights law that prohibits discrimination against individuals with disabilities in all areas of public life. Ibex and ROMP, a nonprofit organization that provides prosthetic and orthotic care to those without access to these services, are inviting people to enjoy a day in the great outdoors and climb a beautiful 14,000-foot peak to celebrate the Americans protected by the act, all to recognize those who are in need of prosthetic services throughout the world.
Can't make it to the Mount Sherman benefit climb on July 23? No problem, you can still support the cause by making a monetary donation for the event. All donations will directly benefit ROMP patients worldwide.
