St. Louis (KSDK) - We are less than a week away from a Labor Day tradition here at NewsChannel 5, the MDA telethon.

The telethon will be very different this year, but the mission is the same: to raise money to stop the deadly disease, muscular dystrophy, and to make life easier for kids with MD with places like MDA camp.

Click the video player above to watch Mike Bush's report on the joys of MDA camp.

The national MDA office is trying something new this year. Instead of a telethon it's a three hour primetime special on Sunday night.

We hope you can join us from 7 p.m. until 10 p.m. on NewChannel 5 to raise money for this good cause.
