Bangor's Professional Firefighters are lucky to have the support of an amazingly generous community; your support has allowed us to be the #1 IAFF fundraiser for the Muscular Dystrophy Association in the entire Northeast United States two years in a row.
This year, we're asking for you to continue that support, if you can- virtually.
Every day, children are born with muscular dystrophy and adults are diagnosed with ALS and other life-threatening diseases that take away their most basic freedoms - like walking, talking, eating, hugging, and ultimately, life itself.
In 1954, the International Association of Fire Fighters promised to stand by MDA's side "Until there is a cure". As MDA's mission expanded to include over 60 different neuromuscular diseases, so did ours. Our fire fighters have been Filling the Boot on Black Friday and at Waterfront Concerts for years (and willl still be there, eventually!)- raising money to help MDA fight back. Now we are asking you to help us #FillTheBoot online.
The money we raise will help children and adults in our community, and will also help support innovative research to change the future for people with neuromuscular disease.
Like we promised in 1954, we are here Until There Is A Cure. Will you stand with us?
