Feb. 10, 2011 - PRLog -- Raleigh, N.C. -  The Remodelers Council of the Home Builders Association of Raleigh-Wake County has been invited to join NBC’s George to the Rescue, a home improvement television show, to serve as the certified experts for a special charity project that will benefit a bride who was paralyzed during a tragic accident. In addition, NBC’s Today Show will feature this couple and their rescue remodel on the Feb. 22 episode.

On Feb. 10, NBC’s Today Show announced a surprise home renovation project for Rachelle Friedman and her fiancée, Chris Chapman. This rescue remodel project will modify their Knightdale home to be handicap accessible and create more usable living space.

In May 2010, Friedman broke her c6 vertebrae and is now paralyzed from the chest down after being pushed into a pool during her bachelorette party.

Working alongside the host of George to the Rescue, George Oliphant, the Remodelers Council will make the couple’s two story home wheelchair accessible by installing an elevator, renovating the master bathroom, redesigning their master bedroom to include a walk-in closet, and renovating the deck. The show will utilize the knowledge and expertise of the Remodelers Council members, many who are CAPS (Certified Aging in Place Specialist) certified.

The final remodeled space will be revealed live on the Feb. 22 episode of the Today Show and the behind the scenes transformation will be aired on the April 2 episode of George to the Rescue.

The contractor labor and the majority of materials for this project have been donated through the support of generous sponsors. A commercial will run during each aired episode to thank the sponsors and donors.
