Stephenson County RAMP Wheel-A-Thon

Highland Community College/YMCA Sports Center, 2998 W Pearl City Road in Freeport
RAMP’s 16th Annual Stephenson County Wheel-A-Thon on Thursday, July 30th at 5:00pm will be at Highland Community College/YMCA Sports Center, 2998 W Pearl City Road in Freeport. This is a fun family-friendly event that takes an ordinary event (like a walk) and introduces a disability awareness aspect by focusing on the abilities of people using a wheelchair – the wheelchair can be shared by a team and decorated before the two mile route begins. Participants collect donations and receive structured incentives from local community partners such as McDonald’s and Magic Waters. The Wheel-A-Thon helps support the efforts of RAMP’s Stephenson County office. The Wheel-A-Thon supports RAMP's mission to promote an accessible society that allows and expects full participation by people with disabilities. Funds raised in Stephenson County, stay in Stephenson County.
