MDA campaign

PLATTSBURGH — Price Chopper Supermarkets has completed another record-breaking fundraising campaign for the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA), raising $1.31 million from events held throughout the year that were supported by the chain's customers, teammates and trade partners.

But, the partnership between Price Chopper and MDA goes well beyond simply raising dollars.

"We're deeply committed to working with MDA to raise awareness of the progress that is being made to cure neuromuscular diseases and to raise funds that fuel that progress," said Neil Golub, Price Chopper's chairman and CEO. "Over the years, we've created a partnership with MDA which integrates into many parts of our business and our personal lives."

Since 1984, Golub has served in a voluntary role as a National MDA vice president and co-emcee of the annual MDA Labor Day Telethon on CBS6 in Schenectady, fostering awareness and understanding of muscle disease and raising millions of dollars at this annual event.
