Fill the Boot 2022

For more than 60 years, the International Association of Fire Fighters (IAFF) have stood on the front lines for the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA), working together to free individuals, and the families who love them, from the harm of muscular dystrophy, ALS and related muscle-debilitating diseases that take away physical strength, independence and life.

The MDA’s spirited Fill the Boot campaign is an honored tradition in which thousands of dedicated firefighters hit the streets or storefronts asking pedestrians, motorists, customers and other passersby to make a donation to MDA, using their collective strength to help kids and adults live longer and grow stronger.  Since 1954, the IAFF has raised more than $585.5 million to help kids and adults with muscle-debilitating diseases live the life they have always imagined and experience the world without any limits.  In 2021, Marquette City Fire Fighters received donations totaling over $11,500 from the community.

The 2022 Fill the Boot event will take place:

Friday, July 29, 2022 from 12pm-4pm on the corner of:

Third & Hewitt

 Cleveland & McClellan

Saturday, July 30, 2022 from 12pm-4pm on the corner of:

 Cleveland & McClellan

Third & Hewitt

Front & Arch

Please come out and show your support for our Firefighters and for the Muscular Dystrophy Association.
