Community Involvement

In the Spirit of Community Rampathon 2023

July 5, 2023

In the spirit of community and compassion, LDC recently joined forces with Master Builders Association of King and Snohomish Counties to participate in their annual Rampathon event. With a dedicated team of volunteers, LDC set out to construct ramps for individuals with mobility challenges, ensuring greater accessibility and independence in their daily lives. This year’s event was a tremendous success, with a record number of employee participation, including an influx of new volunteers joining the ranks.

LDC has been involved in Rampathon for the last eight years, and this year, reached new heights by building a total of three ramps over the course of two weekends. With each ramp constructed, a world of possibilities was opened for those in need, allowing them to navigate their homes with ease.

LDC’s participation in Rampathon proved to be a deeply meaningful and impactful experience for both seasoned volunteers and newcomers. Constructing 16 ramps throughout local communities over the past eight years, LDC has demonstrated an unwavering commitment to improving the lives of our community members.

LDC’s First Time Volunteers Rampathon Experience:

We are grateful to be able to provide this gift to our neighbors and want to share what a few of LDC’s newest volunteers had to say about their experience:

Priyanka, Design Engineer

I volunteered for Rampathon because I find joy in knowing that my efforts can make a difference to the community and to connect with my co-workers. The number of people showing up to help and the amount of positive energy was quite inspiring.

Adam, Civil CAD Technician

My father is in a wheelchair full time, and I have built 2 ramps for him to better access his house, I understand how important this sort of project is.

Jade, HR Assistant

I decided to volunteer for Rampathon because I wanted to make a difference in my community alongside my co-workers. I wanted the opportunity to get to know my colleagues in a non-office setting.  It was great spending an entire day bonding and sharing laughs with my team.

Riley, Civil Project Administrator

I genuinely enjoyed getting to know my co-workers better outside of work, we had a great time working alongside each other, joking around, and having fun while also helping those in our community.

The Rampathon event serves as an example of how organizations and individuals can come together to create inclusive communities that value accessibility and independence for all. This inspiring initiative demonstrates the ripple effect of kindness and compassion, reminding us that even small actions can have a lasting and profound impact on someone’s life.
