Fellow Rotarian Jonathan Milling is going to jail and he needs your help!

header-logo-lock-upWhile it’s not a real jail, it’s even more important as he’s raising bail to help children and adults with muscle disease in our community who are supported by the vital work of the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA). He might not be able to rely on good behavior to get out so that’s why he needs you to post bail! Just click here to make a secure donation and together we’ll Make a Muscle and Make a Difference in the fight against muscle disease. Any amount is greatly appreciated and will help those in need.
