Muscular Dystrophy Lockup Results

KENNEWICK, Wash. - NBC Right Now anchors, Claire Graham and Meredith Boggs are now out of jail... Don't worry though, it was never REAL jail.

Thursday morning, The Muscular Dystrophy Association locked them up and took them to the Texas Road House "jail" for the 15th annual MDA Lockup fundraiser.

After getting their mugshots, they joined other jailbirds from our community making calls to add to the donations.

This year's lock up brought in over $65,000, now going towards helping people living with muscular dystrophy. "Not just for me," said 19 year old Casey Kasselder, an MDA ambassador living with Muscular Dystrophy, "but there's other kids, so many kids, that, you know, need that help, and MDA is the place that gives that help."

If you missed out on this year's lock up you still have a chance to help out. Casey and local MDA members are looking for sponsors for their upcoming benefit concert, "Paying it Forward" on February 9th.

Casey said she thinks they'll need about $1000 to help with the costs of renting out the CBC Auditorium. To get involved, you can contact her at Kass4022@hotmail.com.
