NCART, NRRTS and AAHomecare each received checks for $24,356 from MK Battery at Medtrade in November. "They've always been a great company and backed us up," said John Zona, president of NRRTS. "They've gone above and beyond now." For a six-month period earlier this year, MK Battery set aside $1 for every gel battery it sold, raising $73,068.

The associations will use the money to, among other things, help fuel efforts to create a separate benefit for complex rehab.
