Rampathon event builds 2 ramps in Greenwood

by | May 17, 2009

The yearly Master Builders Care Foundation Rampathon Event builds decks and ramps for mobility-impaired folks. This year’s event built two ramps for Greenwood residents.
The Rampathon event was officially Saturday, but Irons Brothers Construction, Inc., got a head start two weeks ago by building a ramp for Greenwood resident Narda Curlee, a former dance and gymnastics instructor who was seriously injured in a car accident and now uses a wheelchair.
Here’s the crew beginning framing on Narda’s side yard:
 
And here’s Narda and some of the crew on her finished ramp (left to right, Melissa Irons, Rhett Irons, Joseph Irons, Victor Alvarez, Scarlet Haney, Jake Arnesen):
 
Yesterday, Greenwood resident Mae Webb also got a new ramp, built by Jackson Remodeling of Ballard. Her story and a photo are in today’s Seattle Times.
