MDA Telethon, A Success

by Jessica Cervantez

If you've been watching KTRE, then you have seen the annual muscular dystrophy telethon.

Meteorologist Lee Ringer and Anchor Leslie Vincent hosted this year's telethon. The money helps in research to fight the disease.

Christopher Ward has muscular dystrophy, and his family is thankful for the telethon. They say they've benefited greatly.

Local advocates believe Katrina's aftermath, might have an affect on the telethon, but they know East Texans will reach deep into their pocket.

Bob Ward said, "There might be some affect, but hopefully, the people who give a little to the MDA, will also give a little to Katrina relief."
