Every year our membership has been active participants in the MDA Fill the Boot campaign to raise money for the Muscular Dystrophy Association. This year is no different, although we are now facing complications due to the COVID-19 virus.
For more than sixty years, firefighters everywhere have been Filling the Boot on street corners raising money to help MDA fight back. Now we're asking you to help us Fill the Boot 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.
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.
We are asking you to donate, share, and spread this link like wildfire so that we can reach our goal of $21,000 as a department to contribute to the states goal of $1 million.
