When you think of Labor Day, the Muscular Dystrophy Association may come to mind. From 1966 through 2010, Jerry Lewis hosted the MDA Telethon during Labor Day weekend. Area firefighters may be holding their boots out to the public as they work to collect funds for MDA.
The 2013 edition of the MDA event, "MDA Show of Strength," is airing Sunday, September 1 on ABC.
Some of the entertainers this year are The Backstreet Boys, Darius Rucker, Luke Bryan, Lee Ann Womack and Kenny Loggins.
