Each year, Master Builders Association of King and Snohomish (MBAKS) members and community volunteers head to homes throughout King and Snohomish counties to build wheelchair access ramps. For free. 

Because our neighbors in need deserve the same freedoms we have.

Since 1993, members have provided more than 500 ramps during Rampathon. These ramps provide a much-needed benefit for individuals and families who struggle to get themselves or their loved ones safely in and out of their homes.

This year member organizations built 40 ramps, including two in Shoreline. (See previous article about the ramp built by Shoreline-based Irons BC).

The second ramp was built by Jackson Design Build, based in Ballard and serving north Seattle. 

The ramp was constructed for Shoreline resident Lydia Arguelles. Lydia had a heart attack in 2017 and has severe arthritis in her hips and lower spine. She has difficulty walking up her stairs without assistance.

She now has a ramp which is safe for her to use with her wheelchair - a relief for her and her family.
