The Seattle Fire Fighters Union, Local 27 is partnering with the Muscular Dystrophy Association on this campaign – a more than 60-year tradition. Since 2001, Seattle firefighters have raised over one million dollars through the Fill-the-Boot campaign in support of the MDA.
The dollars raised each year from the Fill-the-Boot campaign fund hundreds of important research projects and grants around the country. The contributions help make new treatments available for adults and children living with the disease. Funds collected in Seattle are utilized locally, due to the large number of research facilities in the region.
The campaign has been successful over the years because of the support from community members. There is also an option to donate online.
