TULARE COUNTY – Firefighters are not trying to get people to walk in their boots next weekend, just put money in them.

Next Saturday, Nov. 9 at 7 a.m. members of Tulare County Fire Department together with the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA), will be at 12 locations across Tulare County and Woodlake Fire with boots in hand.

This is the fire fighters’ annual Fill the Boot fundraising campaign to help free kids and adults from the harm of muscular dystrophy, ALS and related life-threatening diseases.

For more than six decades, fire fighters have stood on the front lines to fuel MDA’s mission to free individuals — and the families who love them — from the harm of muscular dystrophy and other related life-threatening diseases that take away the ability to walk, move, smile, talk and even breathe.

Funds raised through 2018 Fill the Boot drives empower families with life-enhancing resources and support, including state-of-the-art support groups and Care Centers, including the MDA Care Center at UCSF and Valley Children Hospital.
