Business and civic leaders from throughout the Sangamon County area will be “arrested” and put “behind bars” for the Muscular Dystrophy Association’s Lock-Up fundraiser on August 6th, 2013 from 11am-4pm at Scheels Sporting Goods.

Accused of having big hearts and being heavily armed with kindness, the “jailbirds” volunteered to be part of MDA’s Lock-Up in order to raise “bail” by encouraging friends, family, co-workers and business contacts to make contributions to MDA that will directly benefit families in greater Sangamon County living with progressive muscle diseases.

For more information about MDA’s Lock-Up campaign, please contact Mitch Davis at 217-351-1853 or
