All Fareway locations are raising funds this July to help free kids and adults from muscular dystrophy, ALS and related life-threatening diseases.

From July 18 through July 23, Fareway will be asking customers to “round-up” to the next dollar on purchases, and donate the difference to the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA). Fareway is also teaming up with the Dr Pepper Snapple Group for the Fareway Floats campaign again, with A&W Root Beer floats available for purchase to benefit MDA on July 22 or July 23 (specific date depending on store).

Since first teaming up with MDA in 1992, Fareway and their customers have raised hundreds of thousands of dollars through golf tournaments, bowl-a-thons, can collections and the annual Shamrocks pin-up program, among many other events, to help MDA provide the families it serves with critical resources and support.

“We are excited to again partner with the Muscular Dystrophy Association on the Fareway Floats tradition and Round-Up Campaign,” said Fareway CEO Reynolds W. Cramer. “Fareway has been a strong supporter of MDA for nearly 25 years, and we are proud to help lead the fight to free individuals, and the families that love them, from the harmful effects of muscle diseases.”

Fareway has more than 100 stores throughout the Midwest.
