NORFOLK, Va. – A local family got some help where they needed it most so their daughter could have more freedom.

The Johnson family has a physically-challenged daughter who needed a new chairlift.

The chairlift the family was using continued to break and repairs were repeatedly needed.

The Johnson’s got help from the¬†Virginia Beach Noblemen¬†organization and the Mobility Supercenter to fix the issue.

The Mobility Supercenter installed a new chairlift on Monday, helping the Johnson’s with a purchase that was too expensive for the family, a spokesperson for the¬†Virginia Beach Noblemen said.
