Default Labor Day Telethon

From three days to three hours? What Happened?
Did they find a cure but, forgot to tell me?
The telethon was a great tool to raise awareness to our plight..
Now it's from 9 - 11 on a Sunday night..

That is very sad. A lot of changes have been made to the MDA and not for the better.

I remember watching the telethon as a child. We even had a neighborhood carnival and donated the money we earned. I always give to the firemen at the stop lights, never thinking I would become a member of the mda.
