Celebrate the ADA’s 30th anniversary while you raise money for a great cause.
We all feel good when we can help somebody in need. Most of us can’t go as far as the “helpers” featured in this month’s issue of Amplitude, who’ve devoted extraordinary amounts of time, money, and expertise to change lives all over the world. But when we have an opportunity to make an impact in our own communities, amputees usually come together to assist those who lack good prosthetic care.
That’s the beauty of the We Still Climb fundraiser being held on July 26 by the Range of Motion Project (ROMP). You can make a global impact without ever leaving your neighborhood. All you have to do is get out and take a hike, ride a bike, climb a mountain, or simply walk around the block, and you can support ROMP’s mission of bringing prosthetic care to underserved communities in the United States and Latin America. Just line up a few sponsors to underwrite your activity; then head on out and celebrate your mobility, along with thousands of people from all over the country and the world.
You can participate as an individual, but we’d like to invite you to sign up as a member of Team Amplitude. Head over to our team page, click the “Join Team” button on the left, and follow the steps from there. If you’re not able to participate on July 26, you can still help by donating to Team Amplitude or supporting a specific team member. We set a goal of raising $1,500, and after just 48 hours we’re already 1/10th of the way there.
We Still Climb commemorates the 30th anniversary of the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA), signed on July 26, 1990, by George H.W. Bush. The ADA was itself the product of thousands of “helpers” who worked like crazy to change the world for the better. You can help ROMP honor their work and take it forward, while enjoying the great outdoors and celebrating your mobility in the process.
