The more than 2 hour star-studded special featured an evening of comedy and musical performances, as well as an inside look at the essential work of

the 
Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) 

through impactful profiles on families, research, care, and advocacy. 

 

The telethon raised $10,548,454 

during the evening, benefiting the
MDA and Help From the Hart Charity.

1-800-MDA-GIVE,

 or through the live 
online auction 

that includes one-of-a kind items and experiences from
 Serena Williams, David BeckhamStephen Curry, and more.

 

 

Special moments from The MDA Kevin Hart Kids Telethon included:
 

·         Kevin Hart and Robin Thicke 
created a catchy “chart topper” jingle for the audience to remember the “1-800-MDA-GIVE” number. [VIDEO HERE]

 

·         DJ Khaled 
made several appearances throughout the telethon to celebrate fundraising milestones and hype up the audience in signature
 DJ Khaled fashion.

 

·         Kelly Rowland and MDA advocate Madee Helaire choreographed an endzone dance for her brother Kansas City Chiefs star rookie running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire. [VIDEO HERE]

·        
Throughout the evening Hart checked in with the celebrity phone bank which included Jay EllisAloe BlaccFat Joe, Zachary Levi, Loni Love, and Leslie Mann whose husband Judd Apatow made a surprise cameo.
 

·         Grammy Award-winning artist Aloe Blacc pulled double duty, not only was he answering phones in the phone bank all evening, he also gave a rousing halftime performance of his hit song “I Need A Dollar.” [VIDEO HERE
 

·         During a heartwarming conversation with 11 year-old MDA Ambassador Ethan LyBrand, Kevin discussed Ethan’s inspirational Joke of the Day series which he started to make others laugh at the outset of the pandemic.
Hart then surprised him with a new wheelchair created specially for him by Magic Wheelchair which was modeled after his favorite transformer, Bumblebee.
 

·         Additional celebrities who participated throughout the evening included: David Beckham, Jack Black, Bryan Cranston, Cindy Crawford, Whitney Cummings, Steph Curry, Adam Devine, Josh Gad, Liz Gillies, Aldis Hodge, Edwin Hodge, Rhys Hoskins, Michael B. Jordan, Jillian Mercado, Daniel Levy, John David Washington, and Gabrielle Union-Wade.

 

Following the telethon
 Nancy O’Dell and Jann Carl hosted the Telethon Showcase,
a 1-hour extended programming special. The show highlighted and celebrated the members of the neuromuscular community, and featured appearances from other celebrity guests.

 

The MDA Kevin Hart Kids Telethon benefited the Muscular Dystrophy Association and Help From the Hart. For more than 70 years, the Muscular Dystrophy Association 
has funded research and care for more than 300,000 people in the United States living with muscular dystrophy, ALS, and related neuromuscular diseases.
