For 20 years the Home Builders Association of Greater Kalamazoo's Rampathon is a community event that brings together volunteers from the HBA, City of Kalamazoo and surrounding communities who have donated their time, skills, and resources to build wheelchair ramps for local residents in need.
For the last few years the HBA has had the rampathon on Veterans Day and built the ramp for a local veteran. This year event will be on November 11, 2013.
In previous years, volunteers from the HBAGK, Senior Services and the Kalamazoo United Way work together on the Rampathon event to construct a wheelchair ramp for a local child and elders with disabilities, or mobility limitations preventing them easy access in and out of their home.
