AURORA, Colo. (CBS4) – Students at Pickens Technical College in Aurora held a fundraiser on Saturday for a fellow student. CBS4 introduced you to Noah Williams in 2018. He is paralyzed from a car crash.
Noah’s welding class helped make his life a little easier by building him a wheelchair ramp as part of a competition. They won and are now taking it a roll further.
“You get up in the morning, go to the bathroom, take a shower, brush your teeth, you don’t think nothing about it. This young man wakes up, he has a whole different thought process,” said Jeff Oliver, a welding instructor.
“Just to see Pickens has come together once again to help me, I can’t express my gratitude enough,” Noah said.
The students are helping fix up his bathroom with money they raised from some creative pieces they made with updated equipment they won in the competition.
Oliver estimates the auction raised between $10-12,000.
