Members of the Lynchburg Fire Department Local 1146, together with the Muscular Dystrophy Association, will celebrate their 60-year partnership during the annual Fill the Boot fundraising campaign to benefit children and adults affected by muscle disease across the region. Funds raised this year will help support MDA’s programs of worldwide research, specialized health care services, and day-to-day support. Three shifts of fire-fighters will fan out across the city filling boots during the week of August 25th.
