MDA Fundraiser Comes to the World Wide Web

The Muscular Dystrophy Association is now in the middle of a new type of fundraising event.   The MDA Labor Day Online Auction will replace the annual telethon usually shown on KTRE.

This Labor Day weekend, you'll be able to participate in the fight against Muscular Dystrophy over the Internet. All proceeds from the fundraiser help pay for research, medical services, and education for Muscular Dystrophy patients.

Kim Iribarren, KTRE Internet Sales Director, said, "This is the first time in history that the MDA Telethon will actually be online, so KTRE is very excited to be the first station ever to do the Muscular Dystrophy Association online for Labor Day weekend."

Money raised through the MDA Online Auction will help in the fight against 43 neuromuscular diseases.
