Event Description

August 22, 2013 Updated Aug 22, 2013 at 4:49 AM EDT

LaGrange County’s newest river adventure business, T & L Country Canoes, LLC, is planning a Labor Day Weekend MDA Benefit to tie in to the annual fundraiser of the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA). On August 31 and September 1 during normal business hours, 7 a.m. to 8 p.m., the business will donate a portion of each sale to the MDA, a nonprofit health agency dedicated to curing muscular dystrophy, ALS and related diseases by funding worldwide research as well as providing support on a local basis to those affected. According to the MDA of Northeast Indiana, there are nearly 700 individuals living with neuromuscular disease in Northeast Indiana who benefit from programs such as a children’s summer camp at Camp Potawatomi, MDA clinics at three area hospitals, the repair and loaning out of medical equipment, and local support groups and seminars.

T & L owners Tim and Lori Mullins said they were inspired to host the benefit by their nephew, who had a form of muscular dystrophy and passed away in 2002. For each canoe or kayak trip sold on August 3 or September 1 costing under $25, they will donate $2, and for every trip totaling $25 or more, they will give $5 to the MDA. An MDA benefit raffle will also be held for a free canoe or kayak trip from T & L along with some MDA-provided raffle prizes.

T & L Country Canoes is located on the Fawn River in northern Indiana at 5775 West 750 North, seven miles north of Shipshewana. For more information on T & L or its upcoming MDA benefit, visit or call 260-562-2411. To learn more about the MDA, go to
