ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A local mother is continuing her effort to spread the word about an online contest which could help lead to the construction of a special needs playground in Lee County.

Traci Henry's proposed Butterfly Kisses Play Park needs to finish in the top 10 this month in it's category in order to receive a $50,000 grant. It's part of the Pepsi Refresh Challenge.

Several volunteers helped get the word out at the soccer fields in Lee County today while others voted.

Henry's son Chance suffers from cerebral palsy and epilepsy. The project is currently in 8th place.
