Community members locked up for the MDA

Volunteers behind the scenes at MDA lock up

Local community members are behind bars Wednesday for the Muscular Dystrophy Association.

A mock jailhouse was set up at the Hampton Inn at Broadway at the Beach in Myrtle Beach for the annual MDA Lock-Up Fundraiser.

Participants have to raise "bail money" for the cause to benefit the Coastal Carolina Chapter of the MDA.

They were locked up for an hour each in the "Maximum-Appreciation Facility."

WPDE NewsChannel 15's Crystal "Bad to the Bone" Costa went behind bars to help the cause.
