Decatur Firefighters teaming up with MDA for "Fill the Boot" campaign

Posted:
DECATUR - Decatur Fire Department Local #505 members are teaming up with the Muscular Dystrophy Association to kick off the annual "Fill the Boot" fundraising campaign on June 19.

During this campaign, Decatur firefighters will attempt to fill boots with donations that will benefit local families affected by life-threatening muscle diseases.  Officials say firefighters have taken part in this fundraising campaign for more than 60 years.

All money raised in this effort will be used to support MDA's programs, like support groups and state-of-the-art clinics.  Additionally, the money will be used to fund MDA summer camps, which benefit children with muscle diseases.
