MDA Lockup – Do a little time, do a lot of good

by on July 5th, 2016 in Campus Events

“Do a little time, do a lot of good!” Ayers Career College participated in this years MDA-Lockup for the Muscular Dystrophy Association. Darlene Robinson (Dean of Student Affairs) was “arrested” by Deputy Hogan to help raise money and awareness for the MDA. She was able to raise $200 as donation to the cause!

MDA Lockup

    The MDA fights to free individuals — and the families who love them — from the harmful effects of muscular dystrophy, ALS and related life-threatening diseases so they can live longer and grow stronger.

    When you go behind bars for MDA, the money you raise will fund researchers working to find breakthroughs across diseases and uncover treatments and cures. Your contribution will also give kids and adults living with muscular dystrophy, ALS and related muscle-debilitating diseases the care they need from the moment of diagnosis, and will empower families with life-enhancing resources and support. Programs like MDA summer camp, support groups for families, and equipment assistance are all ways MDA uses the money you raise to make a meaningful impact. mda.org


 
Ayers Career College participates in the MDA Lockup in honor of HVAC student Chris Venable, whose son is effected by Muscular Dystrophy.
