WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — This weekend the Muscular Dystrophy Association will host their annual MDA Show Strength Telethon right here on ABC.

The event raises money for research on a number of muscle related diseases, including ALS which recently gained a lot of attention through the viral Ice Bucket Challenge. Local organizers say that the partnership with ABE is important to help spread the word and inform as many people as possible about the needs of the organization.

Local fire stations are also joining the cause by participating in the Fill the Boot Campaign. This event is held by the International Association of Fire Fighters and supports MDA as well.

The 2014 MDA Shows of Strength Telethon is Sunday from 9 p.m. to 11 p.m. right here on WWAY and ABC.
