LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - Several inmates tried to make bail by raising money for families in Lafayette Thursday.
It was all part of the annual Muscular Dystrophy Association Lock-Up.
Participants were locked in Thomas Duncan Hall and needed to raise enough money to send two children to camp before they could be released back to work.
Executive Director Sarah Stackert said the inmates enjoy trying to make bail and learning more about MDA.
"I think the whole theme about being locked up and going to jail and bail, it's a really fun theme," Stackert said. "When they get to learn more about MDA and the services and they know they're really making a difference, they become part of our mission and it gets more exciting for them."
News 18's Dan Klein emceed the event.
