‘Ramp It Up’ for a Great Cause

001-b

The Texas Ramp Project invites volunteers ages 14 and up to participate in the 1st Annual San Antonio Ramp Blitz on October 19, sponsored by the Kronkosky Charitable Foundation.

We hope to have a record-breaking day as we attempt to build 15 ramps for elderly and disabled citizens.

But we can’t do it alone – we need your help.

Help us ‘ramp it up’ by:

•    Volunteering on October 19th to help build ramps.
•    Encouraging your friends, family members, colleagues and classmates to join in too!
•    Making a donation to the Texas Ramp Project.
•    Sharing this webpage with your friends in social media. Show your support by using the #SARampBlitz hashtag!

We look forward to seeing you on October 19 in San Antonio!


Kronkosky Foundation funds, channeled to the Ramp Project through the San Antonio Kiwanis, improve the quality of life for the elderly and those with disabilities by helping them to be healthy and productive members of the communities in which they live.
