A local advocate for the handicapped needs community support to win a wheelchair-accessible van.

To support the inaugural National Mobility Awareness Month this month, Braun Ability is giving away three 2012 Dodge-Chrysler Entervans in a campaign called Local Hero.

Columbia County schools Special Services Parent Mentor Heloise Salter recently submitted her 18-year-old son, Justin Salter, as that hero.

A student at Greenbrier High School, Salter suffers from cerebral palsy, which severely hampers him physically. Still, Salter advocates tolerance for the handicapped by speaking, with the help of a computer, to schools and civic groups throughout the area.

To vote for Salter, visit http://www.nmeda.com/mobility-awareness-month/heroes/georgia/evans/1701/....

Site visitors can vote once each day through May 15.
