It's that time once again. Time to dig into your pockets, fill the boot and help out a great cause...all in the middle of an intersection.

Members of the Billings Firefighters, International Association of Fire Fighters L0521, together with the Muscular Dystrophy Association will fan out across Billings with boots in hand for the fire fighters’ annual Fill the Boot fundraising campaign. This helps to help save and improve the lives of people fighting muscle disease.

Firefighters will be on the Westend at the Intersection of 24th and Central on Friday from 10am-6pm and the Heights Intersection of Hilltop and Main on Saturday from 8am-4pm asking for whatever you may be able to spare.

For more than six decades fire fighters have fueled MDA’s mission to find treatments and cures for lifethreatening muscle diseases. Muscular dystrophy and other related life-threatening diseases take away people’s ability to walk, move, smile, talk and even breathe. Funds raised through 2016 Billings Fill the Boot events support MDA’s lifeenhancing programs such as state-of-the-art support groups and clinics. They also make MDA summer camp possible so kids with muscle disease can enjoy “the best week of the year” at Camp Mak-A-Dream in Gold Creek, Montana, and nearly 80 other locations nationwide. The last few years in Billings have been amazing, but this year we are shooting for our best year ever with over $40,000 raised in two days. Please help us in getting the word out and thank you for your support.

Please join in the cause and give whatever you can.
