HIRAM, GA -- Bojangles' kicked off its 10th annual Shamrocks Against Dystrophy fundraiser on Monday, Feb. 28.

Customers can show their support for the Muscular Dystrophy Association by purchasing a green paper shamrock for $1 or a gold one for $5.

In return, participants at most locations will be given a coupon for a free BoBerry Biscuit, a popular Bojangles' dessert.

"Bojangles' has supported MDA for 13 years and been involved with the Shamrocks Against Dystrophy fundraiser for a decade now," said Randy Kibler, Bojangles' president and CEO.

Participating Metro Atlanta Bojangles' locations include:

* Acworth (5010 Cherokee Street, 30161)

* Cartersville (1371 Joe Frank Harris Parkway, 30120)

* Hiram (2017 Lake Road, 30141)

* Woodstock (12100 Highway 92, 30188)

All funds raised during the program, which ends on Sunday, Mar. 20, will help send children affected by neuromuscular diseases to MDA Summer Camp.

This one-of-a-kind camp experience offers a wide range of activities specially designed for young people who have limited mobility or use certain medical equipment, including wheelchairs.

All programs are conducted in a relaxed atmosphere to give campers an unmatched opportunity to develop lifelong friendships, share interests and build self-confidence alongside those dealing with similar challenges.

"Every year, we are able to help more children enjoy the magical experience of MDA Summer Camp," said Kibler. "We are grateful for the support of our generous customers to make a positive impact in the lives of these children."

The cost of sending one child to MDA Summer Camp for a week is $800. With the help of its loyal customers, Bojangles' goal is to send more children to camp this year than ever before by raising what would be a record-breaking $250,000.
