John L. Scott broker Rodney Helgeson shares his dream of “Cam’s swing”

John L. Scott broker Rodney Helgeson and his daughter Camryn.

John L. Scott broker and Sedro-Woolley resident Rodney Helgeson has launched a campaign to bring an adaptive swing to his local community. His daughter, Camryn, was born with special needs and touched the lives of many in her short 11 years. In her honor, Rodney is hoping to fund an adaptive swing in Sedro-Woolley’s Riverside Park that could be used by anyone with a wheelchair. It’s Rodney’s hope that this swing could be a destination for families across the region with a special needs child that would love the opportunity to play.

It will cost approximately $50,000 to bring a Liberty Swing to Sedro-Woolley. Rodney has already secured donations totaling about $20,000 and to raise the remaining $30,000, he has launched a GoFundMe campaign to make this swing a reality. His goal is to get the swing installed by spring, so it can be enjoyed in the warmer summer months. He has the permission of the City of Sedro-Woolley for this project, and they have offered assistance with installation and some materials. His John L. Scott colleagues have been supportive, with one John L. Scott team donating $1,000 toward the cause.
