A great big shout out to our Big Boss Chuck Steinmetz and everyone else who helped bring the MDA Telethon back to WITI-TV!
Like any of the "old timers", I was very disappointed when-after years of wonderful stories and awesome contributions from the INCREDIBLE people of Southeastern Wisconsin-we "lost" the great event.
I'm thankful that Channel 58 stepped up and did such a terrific job over the years; in the end, what matters is helping "Jerry's Kids".
Now, in the last year that Mr. Lewis is hosting the telethon, it's back on our air!
The other day, we had a kick-off meeting; I met two special children with MD; they face a daunting challenge, but each is blessed with a fighting spirit, and charm from here to kingdom come!
They lifted my spirits, and brought back sweet memories of relationships built over the years.
I'm thankful that you'll be able to catch the MDA Labor Day telethon on Fox 6.
One of the dad's said when he was young, he watched it on our station.
He's make a small contribution, get a little bored, then go outside and have some fun.
Today, as a father of a child with MD, this dad is on the other side; he appreciates all the contributions, however small or large.
During these difficult times, please remember "Jerry's kids".
They need your help; anything you can share will make a difference; I honestly feel you'll be blessed by your act of kindness.
