Georgia Businesses Raising Funds for MDA

By  | 

Six Burger King stores from Thomasville to Valdosta raised more than $6,000 to help kids with muscular dystrophy.

The Jack Rabbit stores in Thomasville were also recognized for raising more than $5,000.

Spokespersons from both companies say they were happy to help and will continue to support.

Paul Whitman, district manager for Burger King, says, "It feels wonderful. I mean, when you look at the video of the summer camp, we're gonna try to get involved next year to see us helping kids you just can't explain."

Sandy Roach with Jack Rabbit Foods says, "Our store managers are really proud to participate in MDA and we really hope that other convenience stores will follow our lead and try to meet our goal, if not surpass it."

A spokesperson for the Muscular Dystrophy Association says the money will be used to send kids to summer camp, buy and repair wheelchairs and cover medical costs.
