Mobility Awareness Month - Congratulations to the Davert family!

Congratulations to the Davert family on being named a semifinalist in the competition to win an accessible van from the National Mobility Equipment Dealers Association! Melissa Davert and her 13 year old twins Austin and Michaela have osteogenesis imperfecta and use power wheelchairs, and her husband Ken has cerebral palsy.

The public was asked to vote online for their favorite "local hero" story, and the 29,427 votes the Daverts received put them in the top 10 percent out of 1,700 entries. A panel of judges will decide on a winner in June.

We will keep our fingers crossed that the Davert's inspiring story will win them the accessible van. Thank you to any of our readers who may have voted for them in the past few months!
