El Paso Firefighter Fill the Boot campaign underway


EL PASO, Texas -- This week, during rush hour, you will see your local firefighters with boots in hand to raise money to fund and support the Muscular Dystrophy Association.

The International Alliance of Firefighters is partnering with the Muscular Dystrophy Association to help transform the lives of kids and adults with muscular dystrophy, ALS, and other neuromuscular diseases.  

There are more than 250,000 people in The United States living with neuromuscular diseases. These donations will go towards the MDA to help continue and fund research.

Firefighters in El Paso have been on Shadowmountain and North Mesa Street,  along with other streets throughout El Paso, for drivers to stop by and fill their boots. The partnership between the International Association of Firefighters and the Muscular Dystrophy Association is in its 68th year rating funds, and to date, have raised over $679 million with annual involvement and have had involvement from over 300,000 firefighters nationwide.

This donation started September 17, and will end tomorrow, September 22. For more information about the El Paso Fire Department, you can visit
