Dickinson Firefighters Fill the Boot

Posted: Updated:

Dickinson firefighters prepare to fill the boot for the Muscular Dystrophy Association.

Firefighters will be at the Wal-Mart and Prairie Hills Mall on 3rd Avenue in Dickinson on August 22 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Every dollar that passing motorists and shoppers can pitch into the firefighters' boots helps MDA provide medical treatment and support services to individuals and their families living with neuromuscular diseases throughout the region.

"We know the money we raise definitely makes a difference in the lives of people affected by neuromuscular diseases, and that it helps them get the care they need," says Fire Chief Robert Sivak. "Fill the Boot is a proud tradition for us, and it's a great way for fire fighters to be out in the community reminding residents that we are here, always ready to help." 

Since 1954, firefighters across the country have raised more than $500 million to help improve and enhance the lives of those living with neuromuscular disease.
