Another chance to support a Gloucester woman’s “Journey for Wheels”

Alyssa Briggs

Gloucester, Va. (WTKR) – Alyssa Briggs may not have won a national contest for a specially equipped van to give her independence, but she’s not giving up on her dream.

NewsChannel 3 viewers Took Action earlier this year and helped put Alyssa into the semi-finals during National Mobility Awareness Month sponsored by the National Mobility Equipment Dealers Association.

While she didn’t end up winning one of the hand-controlled vans that would allow her to drive and start college on her own, she’s not giving up.

Wednesday from 5-8pm, the Chick-Fil-A in Gloucester is hosting a Spirit Night to support “Alyssa’s Journey for Wheels”

All you have to do is mention her name, Alyssa Briggs, and 10% of your bill will be donated to Alyssa’s fundraising efforts.

    Sounds like an awesome girl who is trying desperately to strive for independence and an education. Would be a shame for her not to succeed.
