Forrest Stump has partnered with the Range of Motion Project (ROMP), an international nonprofit organization dedicated to the provision of high-quality prosthetic care in underserved populations.

It is both the belief of Forrest Stump and ROMP that mobility is a fundamental human right; that amputees are not disabled by their condition, but by their lack of access to the appropriate prosthetic technology and care. We believe prosthetics are not simply medical devices, but instruments of personal empowerment!

Along with an Elite Team of physically challenged athletes from around the globe – and on the eve of the 28th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act – Nicole and Natalie will attempt to summit Cotopaxi, a 19,347 ft active volcano in Ecuador in September 2018.

Amputees are not disabled by a missing limb, but by a missing prosthesis. Our fundraising efforts will not only bring awareness to the power of mobility, but will provide limbs NOW to those in need. Natalie Harold

By taking our message to the international level, we hope to show that mobility is a fundamental right to all human beings and to call on the U.S. to be a leader in policy change and health care reform that impacts amputee Americans and the entire disability community. Nicole Ver Kuilen
