WINDHAM — A local family is trying to win a wheelchair accessible van.
Amy Christmas said her son, 6-year-old Brayden, uses a wheelchair, so the van would be helpful.
People can cast votes in the contest, part of National Mobility Awareness Month, through May 10.
So far, Brayden has received nearly 6,000 votes.
