PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WLNE)– With traditional fundraising campaigns on hiatus, the Muscular Dystrophy Assocation and the International Association of Fire Fighters have had to rethink their annual fundraising event.

This year, the two groups have launched a virtual “Fill the Boot” campaign to ensure they can continue to help the 250,000 people living with neuromuscular diseases across the country.

The groups have partnered to raise money for families in need for 66 years.

More information can be found on the MDA’s website. 

The MDA has also put together a virtual tool-kit to help affiliates get a head start on filling their “virtual boot.”
