45th Annual MDA Telethon a success!
We wrapped up the 45th annual MDA Labor Day Telethon here in the KETK studios Monday.
And we're happy to report, more than 383-thousand dollars.
And that money, will stay right here in East Texas and helps kids with nuero-muscular diseases.
Sonic sponsored the ever popular tot board.
Suddenlink provided the phone bank.
And as always, firefighters from around East Texas brought in thousands with their "Fill the Boot" campaign.
The entire east texas community joined together to raise money for the muscular dystrophy association.
This year's telethon raised a total of $383,412.00.
Again, the money pledged today provides treatment, research and a way of life for many east texans suffering from nuero-muscular diseases.
