Danville, VA - A Local business and community leader in Danville went to jail today to raise money for the Muscular Dystrophy Association.

"MDA has been there with us from the very beginning of the diagnosis,"said Karen Davis, a parent who has a child with a neuromuscular disease. "It's a wonderful cause, and I know for myself and as well as all the other parents of the kids that I know that have it, they are every thankful for every person that comes out and helps with that."

An MDA representative said they hoped to raise $30,000.
