Climbing For ROMP!

I’m climbing a mountain in Ecuador!

If there’s one thing that my dad taught me, it was to be a man of service. To use my life in such a way that it helps other people. Doing things for others is where you’ll find true happiness in life. So, I’m putting my life on the line (once again) in order to help an amazing foundation raise funds to help the less fortunate. ROMP, the Range Of Motion Project is a global non profit healthcare organization dedicated to providing prosthetic and orthotic care to those without access to these services. During the week of July 21-30, 2017, the 27th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act, the ROMP Elite Team of climbers made up of amputee and non amputee athletes from the United States, Guatemala & Ecuador, will embark on a 10 day expedition in the Ecuadorian Andes. We will attempt to summit Antisana, one of the highest peaks in Ecuador at 18,714 feet. And I thought walking across the African Serengeti was crazy! Believe me, I wouldn’t do this if I didn’t believe in ROMP’s mission statement. Our efforts will go far in helping ROMP help people who desperately need prosthetic legs, arms & orthotic care.

How can you help? This is a fundraiser. I need to raise funds. I’m doing all of the hard work and risking my life but you can be a part of my team! Every Elite Team member must fundraise in order to attempt the climb. If I had the money I would write a check and be done with it. But I don’t. I need your help! Your donation is 100% tax deductible and every person who donates, no matter how big or how small will get their name signed to this beautiful peace flag which will make the journey to the top of Antisana with me. Once at the top, I will take photos of the flag and each donor will get a digital copy of those photos. This way you get back something tangible for your donation, besides the satisfaction of knowing that your money helped someone walk again.


Are you with me? Can I count on your support for this mission? I don’t lend my name or my efforts to anything that isn’t “right” or anything that I don’t passionately believe in. This isn’t some fly by night event. This is serious. People can get hurt. I believe in ROMP’s mission statement and I hope that you will believe in me because I’m about to make Antisana my bitch! Please click on my crowdrise link and make your tax deductible donation. If you’d rather mail in your donation please send to ROMP, P.O. Box 100915, Denver CO, 80250. Please be sure to share my name with your mail in donation and also email me at so that I can include your name on the flag. Also, check out the video link of ROMP changing lives in Ecuador. Thank you in advance for your support which will change lives! #GodFirst #ICanDoThis #RangeOfMotionProject #AmputeeStrong #Antisana #Ecuador #AndesMountains #AmericanswithDisabilitiesAct #Soleus #TeamCollegePark

This video is near and dear to my heart since I too am an electrocution survivor:
