Rampathon Volunteers 2013
2013 Rampathon Volunteers
Team Irons Brothers Construction
For over ten years the staff and volunteers of Irons Brothers Construction have built free wheel-chair ramps as part of the Master Builders Care Foundation's Rampathon event. 

This year, on Saturday, May 17. company employees and volunteers will once again take on this effort and are planning to build a ramp for a family in Lynnwood. 

The family they have chosen needs a ramp for their son, Joshua, age 14, who is a complete quadriplegic with cerebral palsy. He uses a manual wheelchair and requires a nurse and/or caregiver at all times. 

His family is currently using removable metal temporary ramps at their front door step and step to the driveway. These are not very safe or user friendly and something permanent will be very helpful to them. 

Building a new ramp will allow this family to transport their son in and out of the home safely and regain the ease of getting outdoors.
We are looking forward to helping this family to better their lives and safety.
