Bojangles' Raises $300K for Muscular Dystrophy

Bojangles’ raised more than $300,000, a record-breaking total, for the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) during its 10th annual Shamrocks Against Dystrophy fundraiser, which will send 375 children to MDA Summer Camp this year.  

This year Bojangles’ celebrates a 13-year partnership with the Muscular Dystrophy Association and is proud to have raised almost $2 million to help win the fight against neuromuscular disease.

MDA Summer Camp is a one-of-a-kind experience for these children, offering a wide range of activities specially designed for young people who have limited mobility or use wheelchairs. Although the camp is structured, programs are conducted in a relaxed atmosphere that gives campers an unmatched opportunity to develop lifelong friendships, share interests, and build self-confidence. 

“MDA Summer Camp is something these children really look forward to, and we’re excited to be able to send more kids to camp this year than ever before,” says Randy Kibler, Bojangles’ president and CEO. “We are blessed to have team members and generous customers who are passionate about this great cause and have helped us surpass our fundraising goal.”

“MDA is very proud to have Bojangles’ as a valued partner,” says Theresa Miller, MDA regional coordinator. “Bojangles’ exhibits an ongoing commitment to providing help and hope to those with neuromuscular disease, and we look forward to serving more children at MDA Summer Camp this year thanks to their fundraising efforts.”
