Firefighters team up with MDA for "Fill the Boot"

The Cincinnati Fire Department and the Muscular Dystrophy Association are teaming up for the 10th Annual "Fill the Boot" Campaign.

The program continues the life long partnership between the International Association of Fire Fighters (IAFF) and the MDA.  

The kick-off to CFD's "Fill-the-Boot" Campaign is Wednesday at the Greater Cincinnati Firefighters Memorial site located at Sixth & Central Avenue. The MDA will also be presenting the CFD with a proclamation. 

Community members are also invited to help CFD Fire fighters "put out the flame" on neuromuscular diseases by donating spare change to fill their boots. Money raised by the event will benefit Greater Cincinnati Ohio families in their battle with neuromuscular disease.
