"ALTSO's Rocktoberfest events are recognized as some of the most unique, highly anticipated and effective events in the charitable and finance sectors"
What It's All About
ALTSO provides free life-changing prosthetic limbs, orthotic braces, and appropriately fitted wheelchairs to children living with traumatic or congenital limb disabilities in the developing world - at an average cost of only $250 per child. And we stand beside our kids all the way until they turn 21.
The average ALTSO family earns about $3 a day, and lives approximately 1 to 3 miles away from the closest school. With no access to transportation, if a child can’t walk, they simply can't go to school. If they can’t go to school, they can’t get a job. If they can’t get a job, they can’t sustain a family. This is the reality for children with untreated limb disabilities in the developing world. For ALTSO's CoolKids, mobility is more than movement. Mobility is access to education, future employment and the chance to live self-sufficiently. Mobility is hope, dignity and independence.
Now in its 15th year in NYC and 7th year in Chicago, ALTSO's Rocktoberfest events unite over 2,000 professionals from the alternative investments and related financial services industries for a night of rock & roll and acoustic music. This year ALTSO is excited to announce the inaugural ALTSO UK Rocktoberfest-London in support of ALTSO's mission and the 17,000+ children treated so far.
ALTSO has treated more than 17,000 children to date - and is on a mission to treat 1,000 more in 2019.
Rock For Good
What started with one night and a call to musicians in the financial industries now spans 3 cities, 2 countries and unites 2,500 people.
From globally recognized corporations to leading hedge funds, ALTSO is sponsored by companies committed to leveling the playing field for children with limb disabilities.
