CLAY COUNTY – The Clay County Professional Fire Fighters Local 3362 is showing its continued support for the Muscular Dystrophy Association as its members kick off the annual Fill the Boot fundraising campaign May 24-26 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, 215 dedicated fire fighters from Clay County Professional Fire Fighters will hit the streets with boots in hand asking pedestrians, motorists, customers and other passersby to make a donation.
We are thrilled to be working with the Clay County Professional Fire Fighters Local #3362 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 Specialist Jasmyne Stanley. “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 North Florida. We know that their devotion to our families will make this year’s drive a success.”
Funds raised through Clay County Fill the Boot events 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 Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville and UF Health in Gainesville.
They also help send more than 130 local children to “the best week of the year” at MDA summer camp at Florida Elks Youth Camp in Umatilla – all at no cost to their families.
