Strive Not to Drive Winner

12 Aug

Recently, the City of Asheville’s Strive Not to Drive Committee awarded YWCA Diabetes Wellness participant Georgia Burt the “Golden Wheel Award.”  Georgia lives in East Asheville and attends AB-Tech daily for classes and still makes it to the YWCA 2-3 times a week to work.  She does all of this on Asheville City Buses.  Georgia is a great role model for folks that think they can’t move around the city on transit alone. She was presented the award by Mayor Terry Bellamy at the July 27th Asheville City Council meeting. Here is a photo of Georgia and her family with the award:
