The community is invited to come together to support and pray for Brooke Dawkins, a UCF student in critical condition after being hit by a truck last weekend.
A friend of the family told us that a prayer vigil for Dawkins will be held Friday evening at Blessed Trinity Church, located at 4545 Anderson Rd from 7-8 p.m. Anyone interested in attending is encouraged.
Dawkins was involved in an accident on Feb. 23 when she walked out into the path of a Toyota Pickup truck driven by 35-year-old Reginald Smith from Geneva, according to officials.
Dawkins, a sister of the Kappa Delta sorority, captured the attention of students and the community who have come together to offer her support during this time.
“We have been so grateful and overwhelmed by all of the flowers being sent to Brooke!!! Our home smells like a florist and we are taking pictures of them to show Brooke when she awakes,” Laura Dawkins posted on a support page.
Brooke remains at the Orlando Regional Medical Center and was in surgery at the last update on her support page.
