Fill the Boot campaign celebrates 60 years in Waterloo

Posted: Updated:
WATERLOO (KWWL) -

More than 90 Waterloo fire fighters are taking to the streets to “fill their boots” for the 60th time.

The annual Fill the Boot campaign started Friday in Waterloo, kicking off the first of three days. The campaign between the Waterloo Professional Fire Fighters Association Local #66 and Muscular Dystrophy Association is celebrating 60 years this year.

Waterloo fire fighters will be at four intersections asking for donations on August 15, August 22, and August 29 from 3 until 6 p.m. Those intersections are Ansborough and Downing, East 3rd and Franklin, LaPorte and San Marnan, and Ridgeway and Kimball.

The money raised will help support MDA's programs of worldwide research, specialized health care services, and day-to-day support. In addition, the money helps send children with muscular dystrophy to Camp Courageous for one week.
