You know Christopher.
The one who helps old ladies cross the street.
And coaxes kittens out of trees.
And selflessly drinks Corona so other bar patrons won't run out of good beer.
How can someone so inherently good be headed to jail? Well, he's not really going to jail.
But, on Wednesday, September 29th Christopher will be "Locked Up for Good" in the 2010 Downtown Charleston "A Taste of Charleston Lock-up" fund raiser for the Muscular Dystrophy Association. He's calling on his similarly good-as-gold friends to help to raise "bail" for his release.
The money he raises (the goal is $2,400 for anyone who just wants to write one big check) will go to help fight Muscular Dystrophy in the Charleston community.
Every amount helps and really matters to those living with muscular dystrophy who hope for treatments, cures and assistance.
Here is where your money will go:
- $30 Flu Shot
- $74 One minute of research
- $100 One support group session
- $150 One physical, occupational or respiratory therapy consultation
- $300 Professional fees related to initial diagnostic work-up at an MDA clinic
- $500 Assists one person for one year with the repair of a wheelchair or leg braces
- $800 Sends one child to MDA summer camp
Did we mention the fundraising goal is $2,400?
