Fill The Boot- Waco Fire Departments



Waco Fire Fighters Local #478 Fill the Boot to Raise Critical Funds for Local MDA Families


Various intersections around Waco, TX


April 20-22, 2017

Members of the Waco Fire Fighters Local #478, together with the Muscular Dystrophy Association, will fan out across the Waco area with boots in hand for the fire fighters' annual Fill the Boot fundraising campaign to help free kids and adults from the harm of muscular dystrophy, ALS and related diseases that severely weaken muscle strength and mobility. During the 2016 campaign, they raised $57,192.


 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 people’s ability to walk, move, smile, talk and even breathe. Funds raised through 2017 Fill the Boot drives empower families with life-enhancing resources and support, including state-of-the-art support groups and Care Centers including MDA Adult Care Center at St. David’s Medical Center in Round Rock, TX and MDA Pediatric Care Center at Central Texas Neurology Consultants in Austin, TX.


They also help give more than 30 local kids the opportunity to experience the best week of the year where anything is possible at MDA summer camp at no cost to their families at Camp For All in Burton, TX.
