After their inaugural 1,500 mile triathlon down the west coast of the United States, Forrest Stump’s Co-Founders, Nicole and Natalie, took on their next big athletic awareness event for amputees: climbing 19,347 feet to summit Volcán Cotopaxi in Ecuador, one of the highest active volcanoes in the world.
In partnership with the Range of Motion Project (ROMP), a non-profit, for-impact healthcare organization, Nicole and Natalie joined 14 elite amputee climbers to bring their advocacy message to the international scale. Their goal? To show that mobility is a fundamental human right and call for fair access to prosthetic technology and care for all amputees.
They successfully summitted Volcán Cotopaxi at 6:30am on September 28th, 2018.
The following day, Nicole represented the United States as part of an international press conference on disability rights, organized by ROMP.
