We are thrilled to celebrate our 20th Anniversary of Rocktoberfest-NYC, reflecting on our life-changing achievements, and coming together to support those who are still awaiting critical mobility treatment."

Event attendees will have the opportunity to make a greater difference by participating in ALTSO’s signature fundraising campaign, GLOW. By donating to provide a specific mobility treatment -- a pair of crutches ($60), custom orthotic braces ($100), Joshi prosthetic limb ($250), or an appropriately fitted wheelchair ($500) – donors will receive a glowstick to light up the night. Mobility empowers ALTSO’s CoolKids with independence and opens the doors to education and future gainful employment.
