MDA Telethon To Run Through Monday

It's a Labor Day tradition that helps support a worthy cause.

The 39th annual Jerry Lewis Labor Day MDA Telethon is being broadcast this weekend across East Texas.

Locally, the telethon will be broadcast from the Tyler mall, with KLTV anchors serving as mc's.  Last year's telethon raised nearly a half million dollars here locally.

There are more than 500 children and adults currently being treated for muscular dystrophy in the East Texas area.

The telethon will run through 6 p.m Monday.
