Walking, talking, eating, hugging – every day, kids and adults with muscular dystrophy, ALS and related life-threatening diseases can have these abilities taken away.


For 66 years, when not fighting fires, members of the International Association of Fire Fighters have been fighting another ongoing threat — muscular dystrophy, a disease that includes more than 40 neuromuscular disorders. But the COVID-19 pandemic has dramatically affected fire fighters’ efforts to Fill the Boot on streets and stores front in local communities across the country. With many Indiana traditional Fill the Boot drives on hiatus, MDA families are still counting on us! Join us this year and donate to our Virtual Fill the Boot campaign!



Let’s support families in our community so we can all grow stronger and live longer together. Thank you for your help!

Meet our friend Lucas from Kendallville, Indiana!
