[ARCHIVED] Fill the Boot for Muscular Dystropy Association (MDA)


Help Romeoville Firefighters collect donations for the Muscular Dystropy Association's annual Fill the Boot fundraising campaign on Friday, Sept. 8th from 3-6 p.m. at two different locations: 135th & Weber Rd. and 135th & New Ave.

For more than six decades, fire fighters have stood on the front lines to fuel MDA's mission to free individuals - and the families who love them - from the harm of muscular dystrophy and other related life-threatening diseases that take away people's ability to walk, move, smile, talk and even breathe.

Funds raised through 2017 Fill the Boot drives empower families with life-enhancing resources and support, including state-of-the-art support groups and Care Centers, including the MDA Care Center at Lurie Children’s Hospital, Rush University Medical Center, Shriner’s Hospital for Children, and Northwestern Hospital in Chicago, IL. They also help give more than 90 local kids the opportunity to experience the best week of the year where anything is possible at MDA summer camp at no cost to their families at Timber Pointe Outdoor Center.
