The Memphis Fire Department and International Association of Fire Fighters – Local 1784 is showing its support for the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) as its members kick off the annual Fill-the-Boot fundraising campaign to help kids and adults with muscular dystrophy, ALS and related muscle-debilitating diseases live longer and grow stronger.

Continuing a more than 60 year tradition, dedicated firefighters from the Memphis Fire Department and International Association of Fire Fighters – Local 1784 will hit the streets or storefronts with boots in hand asking pedestrians, motorists, customers and other passersby to make a donation to MDA from May 1st through May 31st.

Funds raised through Memphis Fill-the-Boot events in 2018 empower families who inspire everyday Americans to help kids and adults with Muscular dystrophy and related muscle-debilitating diseases live longer and grow stronger, displaying how we all can truly live unlimited no matter what limits we may face. Contributions also help fund groundbreaking research and life-enhancing programs such as state-of-the-art support groups and Care Centers, including the MDA Care Center at LeBonheur Children’s Hospital and Wesley Neurology in Memphis.
