The CHS Ramp A Thon builds wheelchair ramps and restores access to families with mobility needs. Ramps built during this annual week-long event improve quality of life for people who desire to live independently and restore hope and dignity to these homeowners. Ramp A Thon helps both elderly home owners as well as individuals of any age who have limited mobility.
Ramp A Thon is a partnership between CHS and the Catholic HEART Workcamp (hosted by St. Paul the Apostle Catholic Church) who provide the volunteer labor. More than 80 high school and college students give a week of their summer to serve building the ramps. Ramp A Thon is funded through the generous support of local businesses, faith groups and civic organizations.
Ramp-a-thon 2016 was held June 13th – 17th, 2016 throughout Guilford County, from Jamestown to Gibsonville.
