Muscular Dystrophy with Lubbock Fire Fighters for Fill the Boot

Muscular Dystrophy with Lubbock Fire Fighters for Fill the Boot Campaign

Posted:
LUBBOCK, Texas -

Lubbock firefighters need help in fighting muscular dystrophy. 

The "Fill the Boot" Campaign kicked off Thursday. It's a partnership between Lubbock Fire Rescue and the Muscular Dystrophy Association to fund research into MD, ALS and other similar diseases. 

It also supports the MDA's work to support families fighting the disease like summer camps and training seminars. This year's goal is to raise more than $82,000.

 "From a penny to a nickel to a dime, it all adds up. We get a lot of traffic through this area, so at the end of the day, 13 cents, 20 cents, a dollar, it ends up getting our grand total up to our goal, so it makes a big difference," D.J. Perez, with the Muscular Dystrophy Association, said. 

The drive continues through Saturday, Aug. 17. Donations can be mad at Slide and the South Loop and 50th and Indiana.
