For Immediate Release:
2017 Fill-the-Boot for Muscular Dystrophy 

  
As the end of summer approaches firefighters across the nation will once again be busy filling their boots to benefit the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) and “Jerry’s Kids”.   Members of the Loudoun County Combined Fire and Rescue System and the Loudoun Career Fire Fighters Association (LCFFA) Local 3756 are determined to help. From August 25 through September 4, 2017, donations will be collected at various locations across Loudoun County. 
The Fill-the-Boot drive is the result of a partnership between MDA and the International Association of Fire Fighters (IAFF).  For sixty two years the IAFF has pledged to assist MDA in any way possible until a cure was found.  Research and assistance for individuals suffering from neuromuscular disease can be an incredible financial burden on a family.

“We are fully committed to this great cause and the generosity of Loudoun County citizens truly makes this week a success each and every year,” commented Fire Chief W. Keith Brower, Jr.  “Your donations are the true meaning of neighbors helping neighbors.”  

All funds raised by Loudoun County firefighters assist local families affected by one of the forty-three neuromuscular diseases.  These donations provide families with a network of specialized clinics, financial aid for assistive equipment, support groups, informative publications and accessible summer camps for kids.  Thank you in advance for your contributions to this worthy cause.
