In early 2020, John L. Scott broker and Sedro-Woolley resident Rodney Helgeson 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 raised funds to bring an adaptive swing to Sedro-Woolley’s Riverside Park that could be used by anyone with a wheelchair.

Thanks to the help of many people in the local community, including John L. Scott broker Dani Russell, Rodney’s project is finished! The adaptive swing is now installed in Sedro-Woolley, offering those who use wheelchairs the opportunity to swing.

“I wanted to say thank you to everyone that donated or otherwise contributed to the project,” said Rodney. “Cam’s swing turned out great and is already in use! Hoping it brings joy to children for years to come.”
