    Default MDA Fill The Boot

    I was just curious to see how many departments out ther participate in a Fill The Boot event to help raise money for the Muscular Dystrophy Association, I know IAFF is pretty active in it. Today my department held our annual event and raised close to $19,000. We also have a friendly competition with all the surrounding departments to see who can raise the most money.

    Somewhere between genius and insanity!


    Marlborough Firefighters Local 1714 runs an annual voluntary toll road the Thursday before Labor Day and a golf tournament in late September for MDA. We average about $14K a year for the toll road and $10K for the tournament for MDA!

    We assist other Department's Due to the fact that we are in a very Rural area and don't have the road volume to Really put something on ourselves

    Henrico Firefighters Local 1568 does the Fill-The-Boot drive. We don't do the intersection/roadway collection, out of a safety concern. Rather, we put a piece of apparatus and personnel in front of busy business (with the business' permission of course), and collect. Last year, we were able to clear $50,000 over three days.
