Carter.Age 7 Diagnosis: Ullrich Congential MD. Likes: Fishing, fire trucks and video games. Fun Fact: his great grandfather is a retired City of Ft Myers Captain who filled the boot for over 30 years before Carter was born, not knowing his family would benefit from this life saving tradition. 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.
