2019 MDA Fill the Boot Campaign

April 17, 18, 19

 

The Los Angeles Fire Department is supporting UFLAC in the 14th annual MDA Fill the Boot Campaign to benefit Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) Los Angeles.  For more than 60 years, MDA and the IAFF have been working together to help conquer Muscular Dystrophy and other related life-threatening diseases in kids and adults.

This year LAFD and UFLAC hope to collect $125,000 to help local kids and adults living with muscle debilitating diseases live longer and grow stronger.  A Los Angeles area MDA family recently visited a LAFD Fire Station and shared how much the MDA means to them.  Without Firefighters filling the boot this family would not be able to attend the MDA Adventure Camp. New medications have recently been approved that will now help kids with MDA to walk. With your help one day we will be able to conquer muscle disease all together.

This year’s collection dates with be: April 17, 18, 19
