The Montana Chapter of the Muscular Dystrophy Association would like to extend a sincere thank you to the generous citizens of Billings for their incredible support of our “Battle of the Badge” event on June 18.
We could not have done this without the dedication of volunteers and the Billings Fire Department and Police Department. Their time and effort helped raise nearly $2,400 to support neuromuscular diseases.
MDA would like to thank the guest judges: Ed McIntosh from Q2, McLovin and Big J from Hot 101.9, Mikal Young from the Downtown Billings Association and Thor from Road Dogs.
Also, a special thank you to the Rock Pile Lounge for organizing and hosting the event. In addition to their support, they donated $615 to MDA.
The funds raised will help send 10 children with neuromuscular disease to MDA’s summer camp at Camp Paxson in Seeley Lake. The camp provides a barrier-free atmosphere for children to participate in swimming, horseback riding, scavenger hunts, and various activities.
On behalf of the MDA, I would like to thank the firefighters, police officers and citizens of Billings for making this a successful event.
