They fight just more than fires. Fire Fighters are out on the streets, to ‘fill a boot’ to combat Muscular Dystrophy.
The Fill a boot is a nationwide campaign that happens annually. Fire fighters walk on the streets and through lines of traffic holding boots. Passing Drivers drop dollar bills in to the shoes. The proceeds go to the Muscular Dystrophy Association.
"We’ve got a great community, people are willing to give, and they really do give a lot. 14,000 dollars in one day is pretty impressive I would say," said Andy Golz, Fire Captain in Duluth.
Wednesday is the last day of the campaign.
