Rhinelander fire fighters to support MDA with annual Fill the Boot Drive

The Rhinelander Fire Department Local 1028 is showing its continued support for the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) as its members kick off the annual Fill the Boot fundraising campaign to raise critical funds to help transform the lives of kids and adults with muscular dystrophy, ALS and related muscle-debilitating diseases.

"Continuing a 65-year tradition of giving strength to the MDA community, over a dozen dedicated fire fighters from Rhinelander Fire Department Local 1028 will hit the streets or storefronts with boots in hand asking pedestrians, motorists, customers and other passersby to make a donation to MDA," a news release from the MDA stated.

Collection will take place between 9 a.m. at 2 p.m. July 11-13 at the intersection of Stevens Street and Eagle Street (County Highway W) near the Hodag Festival grounds.

"We are thrilled to be working with the Rhinelander Fire Department Local 1028 for another year of Fill the Boot to help provide the funds needed to find treatments and cures for muscular dystrophy, ALS and related diseases that severely limit strength and mobility," said Development Coordinator, Andréa Meulemans. "The dedication of these fire fighters to MDA's mission is unwavering, spending countless hours both with Fill the Boot and MDA Summer Camp to care for the kids and adults in Rhinelander and the surrounding area. We know that their devotion to our families will make this year's drive a success."

Funds raised through Rhinelander Fill the Boot event in 2019 will help the MDA save lives and lift those up in need, by providing the MDA with vital resources to advance their mission of driving innovations in science and care for the neuromuscular community. Contributions have helped fund groundbreaking research and life-enhancing programs such as state-of-the-art support groups and Care Centers, including the MDA Care Center at Prevea Health in Green Bay, and Marshfield Clinic.

They also help send more than 80 local kids to "the best week of the year" at MDA summer camp at the Salvation Army Camp Wonderland- all at no cost to their families.
