Firefighters to ‘Fill the Boot’ June 22-24

Jun 20, 2012

The annual fundraiser “Fill the Boot will be held on June 22, 23, and 24 at the Mukilteo ferry holding lanes and at the intersection of Harbour Pointe Boulevard and Mukilteo Speedway to benefit the Muscular Dystrophy Association.

Help your local firefighters raise money for the MDA. Look for your firefighters in their bunker gear, boots, and MDA T-shirts between the hours of 9 a.m. and 1 p.m.

The International Association of Firefighters (www.iaff.org) and the Muscular Dystrophy Association (www.mda.org) have been partners since 1954 in a fight against more that 40 neuromuscular diseases.

The firefighters help MDA year-round through activities such as “Fill the Boot”, Lock-ups and softball tournaments. Many firefighters also serve as counselors and volunteers at MDA summer camps.

Last year firefighters were able to raise more than $10,000 with 25 firefighters volunteering their time. This year they hope to beat that amount.

The firefighters thank you for last year’s donations, hope to see you this year, and look forward to your continued generosity.
