Bristol Fire Department to fill the boot for MDA Oct 10

Members of the Bristol Fire Department, along with the Muscular Dystrophy Association, will continue a 61-year tradition of helping save and improve the lives of people fighting muscle disease in the Southern Wisconsin area.

More than 20 members of the Bristol Fire Department will volunteer their time with boots in their hand’s for this year’s Fill the Boot drive on Saturday, Oct. 10, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the intersection of Highways 45 and 50.

For more than six decades, fire fighters have fueled MDA’s mission to find treatments and cures for life-threatening muscle diseases. Muscular dystrophy and other related life-threatening diseases take away people’s ability to walk, move, smile, talk and even breathe.

Funds raised through 2015 Bristol Fill the Boot drive support MDA’s life-enhancing programs such as state-of-the-art support groups and clinics, including the MDA Clinics at Children’s and Froedtert Hospital. They also make MDA summer camp possible so kids with muscle disease can enjoy “the best week of the year” at Camp Wonderland in Camp Lake, and nearly 80 other locations nationwide.
