An area organization takes a new spin on a walk-a-thon benefiting Rockford RAMP.
Rather than walking through Riverview Park, participants could ride in a wheelchair for the 25th annual RAMP Wheel-A-Thon. You could wheel for your community, a friend or family member.
RAMP's goal is to promote an accessible society that allows and expects full participation by people with disabilities.
The group is near it's goal of $50,000. As of Saturday it had over $40,000 in funds raised, all benefiting Rockford RAMP.
