Christine Mulligan explained that: "Morgan’s transportation vehicle has been failing for a while now. Just recently the van died and her dad has been unable to band aid it back together. Mulligan and Stephanie Sim-Valliere are Para Educators who work with Morgan at Raymond High School.

They are working with Annie’s Angels, a 501C3 Nonprofit in Stratham NH, to raise money for Morgan to be able to continue living her life and have suitable transportation. This fundraising event will include raffles, face painting, DJ, food and cash bar. Mulligan says she hopes at least 200 people will come out and show support.
