Fill the Boot benefits MDA

MARQUETTE — The Muscular Dystrophy Association’s spirited Fill the Boot campaign is an honored tradition in which thousands of dedicated firefighters hit the streets or storefronts asking pedestrians, motorists, customers and other passersby to make a donation to MDA, using their collective strength to help kids and adults live longer and grow stronger.

Since 1954 the International Association of Fire Fighters has raised more than $585.5 million to help kids and adults with muscle-debilitating diseases live the life they’ve always imagined and experience the world without any limits. In 2017, Marquette City Fire Fighters received donations totaling $11,882 from the community.

The 2018 Fill the Boot event will take place:

≤ Friday from 2-6 p.m. on the corner of Cleveland and McClellan and the corner of

Third and Hewitt as well as at Tadych’s Econo Foods.

≤ Saturday from noon-4 p.m. on the corner of Third and Hewitt and the corner of Front and Washington as well as at Tadych’s Econo Foods.
