2017 MDA Boot Drive

Georgetown Fire Fighters Support MDA with

Annual Fill the Boot Drive

 

GEORGETOWN, SC, April 27, 2017 — The Georgetown City Fire Department is showing its support for the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) as its members kick off the annual Fill the Boot fundraising campaign to help kids and adults with muscular dystrophy, ALS and related muscle-debilitating diseases live longer and grow stronger.

            Continuing a more than 60 year tradition, dedicated fire fighters from Georgetown City Fire Department will be at storefronts with boots in hand asking pedestrians, motorists, customers and other passersby to make a donation to MDA on May 5th, 6th, and 7th at Walmart, located at 1310 North Fraser Street.

            “We are thrilled to be working with Georgetown City Fire Department for another year of Fill the Boot to help provide the funds needed to find treatments and cures for muscular dystrophy, ALS and related diseases that severely limit strength and mobility,” said MDA Area Director, Megan Relford. “The dedication of these fire fighters to MDA’s mission is unwavering, spending countless hours with Fill the Boot to care for the kids and adults in Georgetown and the Lowcountry. We know that their devotion to our families will make this year’s drive a success.”

            Funds raised through Georgetown City’s Fill the Boot event in 2017 empower families who inspire everyday Americans to help kids and adults with Muscular dystrophy and related muscle-debilitating diseases live longer and grow stronger, displaying how we all can truly live unlimited no matter what limits we may face.

Contributions also help fund groundbreaking research and life-enhancing programs such as state-of-the-art support groups and Care Centers, including the MDA Care Center at MUSC in Charleston.They also help send more than 30 local kids to “the best week of the year” at MDA summer camp at Camp Twin Lakes in Rutledge, GA – all at no cost to their families.

About MDA
            MDA is leading the fight to free individuals — and the families who love them — from the harm of muscular dystrophy, ALS and related muscle-debilitating diseases that take away physical strength, independence and life. We use our collective strength to help kids and adults live longer and grow stronger by finding research breakthroughs across diseases; caring for individuals from day one; and empowering families with services and support in hometowns across America.
