CHAMPAIGN -- People were willing to go to jail for a good cause. MDA held its yearly fundraiser.

Volunteers had a few weeks to raise money. Wednesday, they sat in "jail" at Jupiter's to come up with the rest. They made calls and sent out emails, each trying to raise $2,400.

Last year, volunteers raised $70,000. This year, they're hoping for $80,000. MDA says the money helps pay for clinic visits and other services for families.
