Los Angeles County Firefighters Local 1014 has been a proud sponsor and fundraiser of the MDA for over 60 years!
As public servants, our members are not only serving on the frontline during the COVID-19 pandemic, they are also helping our most vulnerable communities survive and thrive. Children with muscular dystrophy are some of the most vulnerable to this virus. Additionally, the quarantine has limited available resources for their parents and caregivers. THE TIME IS NOW!
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.
For more than sixty years, fire fighters have been Filling the Boot on street corners - raising money to help MDA fight back. Now I'm asking you to help me 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.
