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 more than 60 years, firefighters like us across the country have been Filling the Boot on street corners to fight back against these diseases – and every year we’ve given millions of dollars to MDA to fund life-changing research and family services. We’re hitting the streets to do it again, and while we’re out there, you can help us fill our boots online.

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

 Florida Fire Fighters! 

Carter, age 7, Diagnosis: Ullrich Congential MD. 

Loves fishing, fire trucks and his dog, Jayda. 

Fun Fact: His great-grandpa is a retired fire captain who filled the boot for over 30 years before Carter was born, not knowing, one day his family would benefit from this life saving tradition.
