Fire fighters will be at Pruett's with boots in hand asking the community to make a donation to MDA on September 20 and 21 from 4:30-6:30 p.m. and September 22 from 11:30 a.m.-2 p.m.
“For more than 60 years, fire fighters have stood on the front lines with MDA in the fight to free individuals — and the families who love them — from the harm of these life-threatening muscle diseases,” said Regional Manager of Firefighter Partnership, Holly Carroll. “We are extremely thankful for the members of the Signal Mountain Fire Department and SMFD Firefighters Association Local 3759 for taking the time to participate in a Fill the Boot drive for MDA. We're grateful for their steadfast drive and remarkable care they are showing the kids and adults we serve and look forward to working together to make this Fill the Boot season a huge success.”
MDA’s spirited Fill the Boot campaign is an honored tradition in which thousands of dedicated fire fighters in hometowns across America hit the streets or storefronts asking pedestrians, motorists, customers and other passersby to make a donation to MDA, using their collective strength to help kids and adults live longer and grow stronger.
Funds raised through the Fill the Boot event empower families with life-enhancing resources and support that open new possibilities and maximize independence, so they can experience the world without any limits.
The Muscular Dystrophy Association is committed to transforming the lives of people affected by muscular dystrophy, ALS and related neuromuscular diseases. We do this through innovations in science and innovations in care. As the largest source of funding for neuromuscular disease research outside of the federal government, MDA has committed more than $1 billion since our inception to accelerate the discovery of therapies and cures. Research we have supported is directly linked to approved, life-changing therapies across multiple neuromuscular diseases. We support the largest network of multidisciplinary clinics providing best in class care at more than 150 of the nation’s top medical institutions, and each year thousands of children and young adults learn vital life skills and gain independence at summer camp and through recreational programs, at no cost to families.
