In this photo released by the Muscular Dystrophy Association, MDA National Chairman Jerry Lewis announces the total mount raised during the the Jerry Lewis MDA Telethon on Monday, Sept. 6, 2010 in Las Vegas. The Jerry Lewis MDA Telethon say contributions and pledges from this year's Labor Day event totaled $58.9 million. The amount was down from nearly $60.5 million last year and a record $65 million in 2008. But Lewis says he's heartened by Americans' ability to help others in need even when they're struggling financially. (AP Photo/Muscular Dystrophy Association, Eric Candles)
