Tess Corners tops
in MDA fundraiser
Muskego — The Tess Corners Volunteer Fire Department went beyond the call of duty in June when the volunteers joined in the battle against neuromuscular disease, according to the local Muscular Dystrophy Association.
The department participated in its first Fill the Boot drive for MDA in June and raised more than $13,000 for local families affected by neuromuscular diseases. This new total makes them the top volunteer department in the state.
All donations will benefit local MDA clients and services, such as sending children and young adults to MDA summer camp in Kenosha County, funding visits to hospital clinics, financing wheelchair repairs and providing research for treatments and a cure.
MDA's Fill-the-Boot program is supported by the International Association of Firefighters and volunteer fire departments across North America. Last year, Wisconsin fire fighters raised $600,000 for MDA.

Muskego — The Tess Corners Elementary School PTO will hold its Eighth Annual Walk-A-Thon Fundraiser on Oct. 4.
Between now and then, donors will pledge donations on behalf of the Tess Corners students, faculty, parents and relatives who actually will walk. Donations are tax-deductible.
