The Get Up Stand Up Foundation is created in honor of a local musician named Gabriel “Gaboo” Mondesir. He was a pillar in the music community in Columbus, Ohio. He suffered from Peripheral Vascular Disease causing him to become an amputee.
Through therapy sessions at Optimus Prosthetics, we realized the cost of getting a prosthetic limb was rather expensive. With a figure quoted to us at $59 thousand dollars, we knew we needed to find a way to raise the remaining $9K that we needed. At that moment, we decided to have a music festival to raise the money we needed for his prosthetic limb and the rest we would donate to charity. That’s when we learned about The Paddy Rossbach Youth Camp and their mission to aide in the fulfillment of young amputee lives.
With love and unity through music as the forefront of this foundation, we look forward to a prosperous outcome as we introduce The Get Up Stand Up Foundation, a foundation that will help to improve the lives of amputee children while celebrating the gift of life, the gift of love and the awesome gift of music!!! The Paddy Rossbach Youth Camp is the place where amputee kids can enjoy childhood growth activities and feel normal.
