Auto Glass Industry Makes a Difference, Join Fight Against Muscular Dystrophy

Last month brought you information about Steve Theisen's participation in the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) "Lock-Up."

Theisen got involved with the fundraiser almost by accident.

"Like most business owners or managers, I get dozens of calls every year from charities. Ninety-nine percent of the time, I can't help, but this time the sun and the moon were positioned just right and a "yes" fell from my mouth," Theisen told

He had participated in the event once before, several years ago, and with his schedule free enough, he opted to participate again this year. The experience is one that, for Theisen, is not a hard commitment to make for a good cause.

"The truth is, it really is a very easy thing to do and took very little of my time. The MDA has really got this program down and they make it very easy to be successful," Theisen said. "I was able to raise a total of $1,505.00 in the just the few days I worked at [raising money], most of which came from the personal pockets of vendor reps."

Theisen hopes to double the amount he raises by starting to get the word out earlier.

A successful campaign as it is, it turns out Theisen wasn't the only member of the industry to be put behind bars. Nathan Aim, with Auto Glass Clinic & Mobile Radio in Bremerton, Wash., also participated.
