Letter - Thanks for participating in the MDA's shamrock drive
DETROIT LAKES - As chairperson of MDA's Shamrocks Against Dystrophy, I want to take a moment to thank businesses and patrons in the Detroit Lakes area for their generous participation in our 2008 campaign. I'm delighted to say that this year's fundraising efforts were a great success.
Those little green and gold Shamrocks mobiles sold by local businesses help support MDA's vital programs of researc (www.mda.org/research), health care services (www.mda.org/services.html), and public education right here in Detroit Lakes and across the country.
On behalf of all the individuals and families coping with muscle-wasting diseases, I send a big warm "thank you" to Detroit Lakes residents -- you've certainly put a smile in these Irish eyes!
