Who: The Master Builders Association of King and Snohomish Counties, through its Rampathon program, is now accepting applications for free ramps for families struggling with mobility within their home or from nonprofit organizations whose clients or residents struggle with mobility.
What: Each year since 1993, MBA members and community volunteers head to home sites throughout King and Snohomish counties to build ramps during the month of May, for free, because our neighbors in need deserve the same freedoms we have.
The Master Builders Association is proud to help local veterans, children in need, and elderly community members become more mobile and independent. Applications to be considered for a free wheelchair ramp are available in January and February of each year.
Why: Rampathon is about helping people and families with mobility issues. Our and our members’ goals is to change their lives. Although Rampathon doesn’t happen until May, we are accepting applications from families and organizations in King and Snohomish counties through March 1. We want to get the word out and help more families struggling with mobility.
We have tons of stories on veterans, senior citizens, children, the LiHi homeless tiny homes community – all of which have received free ramps. If you’re looking for a certain story, we can probably find it. We just need to get the information out there.
