Teams of local fire fighters will be at 216th Avenue Southeast and Southeast Covington-Sawyer Road in Black Diamond from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday for their annual Fill-the-Boot fundraising campaign for the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA).
Last year, the International Association of Fire Fighters raised nearly 28 million for MDA, making the grand-total for the 57-year tradition over $455 million.
Proceeds raised during the street-side campaign will help support MDA’s local services and research programs, including a week long summer camp for kids, support groups, and local clinics.
MDA is a volunteer health agency working to defeat more than 40 forms of Muscular Dystrophy, including ALS and related diseases through programs of worldwide research, comprehensive services and far-reaching professional and public health education.
