Due to Covid-19, the Fargo Firefighters Local 642 will not be out in public collecting donations. In an effort to continue to support the Muscular Dystrophy Association and the children of these difficult diseases, we are attempting to conduct an online Fill the Boot Drive. We ask for your help as we try to achieve our goal of meeting our 2019 donation amount. Last year we raised $24,488. It is a steep task but we know we have a very supportive community. Please accept our challenge.
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 (and I'll still be there!)- raising money to help MDA fight back. Now I'm asking you to help me Fill the Boot online.
The money I 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.
