Grab a hamburger and help a nine-year-old Bossier Parish girl get her own racing wheelchair.

Peydan is headed to the Junior National Disability Championships in Iowa for the second year in a row. She currently uses a borrowed wheelchair but only can keep it for a short amount of time.

The Buc Stop in Haughton is selling hamburger meals from 4 p.m. until 6 p.m. today to help cover costs. Tickets are $8 per meal.

Peydan is the only athlete from Bossier Parish attending the national championships and all donation amounts are welcome.

The Buc Stop is located 201 N. Elm St. in Haughton.
