SPRINGFIELD, Mo. — This week KOLR10 is partnering with the Muscular Dystrophy Association once again for “MDA Week” a time to raise money and awareness for local patients fighting muscle diseases.    

Tonight Walmart hosted a mini-golf tournament at Get-Away Golf on East Sunshine to raise money to help fund research for a cure.

There were 26 foursomes on hand at the event with teams raising money that will help pay for patient services in the Ozarks.

Walmart has been a fundraising partner with MDA for many years.

“Between the fees we paid to be at this event, and the grant money Walmart makes available, we’ll be giving $10,000 to the MDA this evening,” said Stephanie Frandsen of Walmart.  

Here is a picture of tonight’s top fundraising crew. Team members from Marshfield’s Walmart raised $10,000.
