Against all odds, the hedge fund and financial services industry helped industry charity A Leg To Stand On (ALTSO) deliver on their commitment to treating nearly 1,000 children through a historic 2020. The charity, known for its annual Rocktoberfest events in New York, Chicago, and London, was able to treat all registered 2020 patients without interruption and register over 1,000 new children for treatment in 2021.
In addition to the outpouring of support from musicians, sponsors, and attendees of ALTSO's Virtual Rocktoberfest, a number of companies stepped up to the challenge presented by COVID-19, offering year-round support, services, and fundraisers. Companies based in the US and UK showed their commitment to ALTSO’s mission of providing free, high-quality prosthetic limbs, orthotic devices, and appropriately fitted wheelchairs to children with limb disabilities in the developing world.

ALTSO’s pro-bono Hubspot Partner and digital marketing consultant, Gate 39 Media, continued working closely with ALTSO to increase visibility of ALTSO’s mission through their blog The Community.
