FOLLOWING EVENTS AT PENN STATE, MDA TO STOP USING TERM “JERRY’S KIDS”

Not This Jerry

With the recent events unfolding at Penn State University involving former assistant coach Jerry Sandusky, the Muscular Dystrophy Association has announced it will stop using the term “Jerry’s Kids” in all its advertising, effective immediately.

MDA head Joseph Deal said, “With the news coming out of Happy Valley regarding the Grand Jury Indictment of former Assistant Coach Jerry Sandusky and his alleged molestation of a number of young boys, we thought it best to stop using the reference to “Jerry’s Kids” we have been using in our Telethon’s for so many years.”  We feel strongly that it is our organization’s best interest to avoid any confusion with what’s going on at PSU and our fund raising efforts,” he added.  “We’ve talked it over with Mr. Lewis, and he’s in agreement.”
