Firefighters join fight against muscular dystrophy

SAN MARCOS — The San Marcos Professional Firefighters Association Local 4184 will be holding a Fill-the-Boot fundraiser from 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. Aug. 14, at the intersection of Rancho Santa Fe Road and San Marcos Boulevard. The fundraiser will benefit the Muscular Dystrophy Association, MDA. Off-duty firefighters will be collecting donations for “Jerry’s Kids” to help find a cure for more than 40 neuromuscular diseases.
Firefighters across the nation have participated in the Fill-the-Boot campaign event for the last 55 years. This is a well-established event that is widely recognized in communities across the country. The Fill-the-Boot campaign sponsored by firefighters has been the cornerstone to provide funding for research against neuromuscular diseases, provide equipment for families and help patients with supplies to make everyday life easier.
