EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) -- It will be an afternoon full of fun at Festival Foods this Labor Day.
The 26th annual MDA Labor Day Carnival happens from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. with food, a car show, silent auction, and more.
Last year it brought in more than $15,000 to benefit the Muscular Dystrophy Association.
That money turns into a world of resources for people like Bonna and Jack Maypark. Jack was diagnosed with ALS 10 years ago.
"And we were told he had two to five years to live and so go home and get your life in order," said Bonna Maypark, Jack's wife.
How you live your life changes. At first she says, they had no direction.
"And it was so devastating, you don't know where to go or what to do," she said.
But the MDA she says has made complications and challenges easier to face.
"We are so fortunate in getting involved with MDA and having this equipment available to us and also to go to the ALS clinic," she said.
She hangs on to hope knowing Jack has still been by her side for a decade.
"You at least have that time and you learn so much when you have that disease no matter what it is," she said.
The MDA Labor Carnival takes place from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at Festival Foods in Eau Claire. There will be bingo, games, food, and more.
There is also a car show that begins at 10:30 a.m. A movie will also be shown for kids at Micon Cinemas - that begins at 10:00 a.m.
