Firefighters collect donations from la Crosse drivers for the ‘Fill the Boot’ campaign

Local firefighters are banding together to benefit those living with Muscular Dystrophy.

The La Crosse Area Professional Firefighters hosted a ‘Fill the Boot’ Thursday. Volunteers collected donations along La Crosse Street, at the intersections of 4th Street and West Avenue.

Money raised through the annual event will help support the Muscular Dystrophy Association, which works to improve the lives of those living with the disease.

The ‘Fill the Boot’ campaign is now over, but firefighters urge people willing to donate head to the MDA website.
