Quik Mart & MDA Shamrocks Tradition Grows in 2017
Amount Raised to Support Kids and Adults with Muscular Dystrophy
The Muscular Dystrophy Association of Nashville announced today that Quik Mark 2017 MDA Shamrocks fundraising program raised $22,164 to help free kids and adults from the harm of muscular dystrophy, ALS and related muscle-debilitating diseases.
Quik Mart – Edwards Oil Co. is a third and fourth generation family owned and operated company, based in Lawrenceburg, Tennessee, serving 14 counties in Southern- middle Tennessee and Northwest Alabama. They have partnered with MDA since 1985 and Quik Mart has helped raise over $300,000.00 for MDA and the fight against muscle disease.
From March 1st through March 21st, 39 local convenience stores participated in the nation’s largest St. Patrick’s Day fundraising program in which customers purchased an iconic paper MDA Shamrock (pinup) for just a $1, $5 or a larger contribution at check-out. Each Shamrock was signed by generous customers and prominently displayed in each store, symbolizing strength, independence and life for MDA families in the community.
