Annual MDA Telethon in Full Swing This Sunday and Monday

It's Labor Day weekend, and that means the Jerry Lewis MDA telethon is underway, raising money for research and patient care for those with muscular dystrophy, including medical, therapy, and summer camp programs year-round. Last year's telethon raised over $60 million.

ABC6 is proud to showcase the telethon, and host the local telethon for Jerry's Kids, this year from Twin River Casino in Lincoln, RI.

As the telethon runs from Sunday evening, through the night, and for most of Monday, you'll see performances and presentations from the main telethon broadcast, and segments from the local telethon, with appearances by ABC6 News personalities, and local folks looking to help, and make a difference.
