Boise Fire Fighters Local 149 Rally to Hit Fill the Boot Goal

Members of the Boise Fire Fighters Local 149 are rallying together to hit their $50,000 fundraising goal for the Muscular Dystrophy Association. On May 18, 2018 Boise Fire Local 149 held their annual Fill the Boot and raised just over $37,000 to help free Idaho kids and adults from the harm of muscular dystrophy, ALS and related diseases that severely weaken muscle strength and mobility. On Friday, September 7, Boise Fire Local 149 will be at the intersection of Overland Road and Five Mile Road from 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. with boots in hand so that they can meet and exceed their original goal of $50,000.

 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.
