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 we're 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.
Traditionally we have gone out during labor day weekend to collect and interact with the community. This year with Covid-19 that is not as feasible and we know some people are not comfortable with in person contact and we have as such set up this virtual boot you can donate to.
