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 years, career and volunteer firefighters and EMTs in Fairfax County have been Filling the Boot on street corners and raising money to help MDA fight back. Thanks to the tremendous generosity of the citizens, visitors, and employees of Fairfax County, we have led the nation in collections and donations benefiting our local chapter of MDA! This year, the Fairfax County Volunteer Fire and Rescue Association join the Fairfax County Local 2068 in 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.
