Muscular Dystrophy Association gets muddy to raise awareness

MUSTANG, Okla. -  On Saturday Muscular Dystrophy Association took its fundraising campaign to the volleyball courts.

The fund raising campaign brought in hundreds of people from across the state to compete in a mud volleyball tournament.

The money raised at the annual event goes towards helping Oklahoma families who’s loved ones are suffering from muscular dystrophy.

On top of the donations, an important part of the event is to raise awareness about the disease.

The muscular dystrophy association supports over 2,000 families in Oklahoma alone.

Moira McCarthy with MDA says that the event is about having a good time, but their mission is to bring to light just how many people suffer from the disease.
