Rampathon helps four Renton families

On May 19 the Master Builders Association of King and Snohomish Counties celebrated 25 years of Rampathon — an event where volunteers build fee wheelchair ramps to improve mobility for families in need.

This year it was expected that 50 ramps would be constructed during the all-day event.

Four Renton residents were recipients of the ramps — Amanda Diebolt, 29; Douglas Weston, 57; Jeffrey Yuen, 29; and Hazel Paddock, 2.

Tenhulzen Construction of Bellevue, Kitchen Plus in Bellevue Sapphire Homes NW of Bellevue and Creative Home Partners were the builders who helped build the ramps for the Renton residents.
