Firefighters team up with MDA to “Fill the Boot”
Syracuse (WSYR-TV) - Syracuse firefighters teamed up with the MDA for the "Fill the Boot Drive” at the State Fair.
A Labor Day tradition, firefighters from the Syracuse Fire Department lined the morning parade route and stayed for nearly four hours to raise funds.
The money raised will go toward clinical trials and treatment for muscular dystrophy.
The funds also pay for summer camps and other programs for children who are living with the disease.
People all over the country helped to raise over $54 million during the annual MDA telethon on Sunday.
