Jerry Lewis' longtime telethon to fight muscular dystrophy has some of its roots right here in Rochester.
Whec-TV channel 10 was one of the first stations to run his Muscular Dystrophy Telethon when stations started carrying it in 1968.
This was also the first station to show local people getting involved, taking donations and answering phones.
That turned out to be a big success and other stations running the telethon started doing it too.
