Bossier City firefighters fill the boot for MDA

Friday, August 31, 2012 - 4:38pm

Members of the Bossier City Fire Department will be out this holiday weekend asking folks to join them in the fight against neuromuscular disease.

The firefighters will be taking part in their Fill the Boot campaign to raise money for the Muscular Dystrophy Association. The firefighters will be stationed at two intersections 1) Barksdale Boulevard and Westgate Lane and 2) East Texas Street and Airline Drive at various times today through Monday asking motorists to donate money as they strive toward the goal of filling their fire boots with cash.

The money raised will go toward funding research, sending children to MDA summer camp and purchasing equipment such as wheel chairs and walkers for victims of neuromuscular disease.
