Tullahoma Firefighters and MDA CELEBRATE “60 Years Strong”

Fill_the_BootMembers of the Tullahoma Fire Department along with the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA), will celebrate their 60-year partnership and kick off their Fill the Boot fundraising campaign to benefit children and adults affected by muscle disease.
Local firefighters from the Tullahoma Fire Department will be at the Wal-Mart and K-Mart with boots in hand for this year’s drive on October 11th from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM.
“Throughout 2014 MDA and fire fighters are celebrating 60 years of proud partnership and we are thrilled to have the Tullahoma Fire Department join us this year in the fight against muscle disease,” said MDA Fundraising Coordinator Rachael McKenzie. “Fire fighters do more for MDA and the families we serve than any other group, dedicating countless hours of their time every year participating in Fill the Boot drives and at MDA Summer Camp. We’re grateful for the support of these inspiring, selfless individuals who have made a profound impact on our families’ health, wellbeing and quality of life, and we’re looking forward to a lasting partnership with the Tullahoma Fire Department.”
Funds raised through 2014 Tullahoma’s Fill the Boot event will help support MDA’s programs of worldwide research, specialized health care services, and day-to-day support – which includes sending children affected by muscular dystrophy and related diseases to a weeklong, barrier-free MDA summer camp.
