Rampathon 2016

2016 marked the 23rd anniversary of our annual event Rampathon®. Since 1993, our members have contributed more than 400+ ramps to members of our King and Snohomish County communities.

rampathon
The addition of a ramp to a home is more than just an alternate way into a house. In many cases it provides a means to truly re-enter the world and have the opportunity to participate in life. It benefits both the individual who is in need and the family and caretakers as well. Easy access can mean less strain when pushing a wheelchair, it means not having to drag a wheelchair or walker down stairs while trying to crawl out of the home; it means being able to go outside on a beautiful day and simply enjoy; it means being able to go to much needed doctor appointments without added stress; it means being able to attend family and friend functions that are what life is truly all about.

Our ramps provide safety and peace of mind. The addition of a ramp insures that there is a way out in the case of a fire or other home emergency; it is peace of mind knowing that emergency aid crews can get in and out with those in need if a medical emergency presents itself.

For those who participate in Rampathon® it is an experience that changes everyone involved. The ability to volunteer one day in order to truly change someone’s life is an incredible experience. Many captains maintain contact with their recipients and develop life-long friendships. At a minimum our teams give a gift of hope to someone in need and their families.
