Every year, JERRY LEWIS raises money through the MDA TELETHON. Locally, in Central Alabama, you can call, 334-260-0489 and 1-800-631-0665 (Nationwide). WAKA is almost at 123,000. Elmore has a challenge right now...all women and children to donate $25.00.
Watching the Telethon every year is inspiring to me, and this year, watching Augie, his wife Lynne, and one of their son's appearance on the show...was very touching. Augie & Lynne Nietos are co-chairpersons of the MDA's ALS Division Augie has progressed with the Lou Gehrig's Disease over the past 4 years. He is now in a wheelchair and speaks through a machine...with his eyes. Truly Amazing couple! Have raised 19 million dollars for ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease). http://www.als-mda.org/nietos.html
