N.C. DOT Employees Raise $1,125 for the Muscular Dystrophy AssociationMoney to help two kids attend MDA Summer Camp
Wilmington - Spending the morning in prison garb was well worth it for NDOT Division 3 Engineer Karen E. Fussell and Bridge Program Manager Amanda Glynn, who together raised $1,125 in the annual MDA Lock-Up event held at the Coastal Carolina Harley Davidson dealership in Wilmington.
The money raised will help two kids attend MDA summer camp. Glynn was more than happy to participate in the fundraiser.
"It was very exciting and fulfilling to be able to raise enough money to send a kid to MDA Summer Camp," said Glynn. "As a member of this community, it's important to me to give back as much as I can to our area."
Karen Fussell was just as enthused and even more motivated to go the extra mile. "Thus far, between the two of us, we have raised $1,125! That's enough to send 1 kids to MDA Summer Camp! We have a few more weeks to raise funds to send that extra half a kid. So if you know someone that wants to participate but hasn't yet, please send them our way," Fussell said.Fussell has worked for NCDOT for more than 25 years and currently serves as the Division 3 Engineer, overseeing Department operations in Brunswick, Pender, New Hanover, Onslow, Duplin and Sampson counties. Glynn has been with NCDOT for eight years and oversees Bridge Programs, which includes Bridge Maintenance and many of the smaller bridge replacement projects
