Fill the boot

Firefighter Hance Anderson collected funds last year in support of the Muscular Dystrophy Association through the annual Fill the Boot campaign.

Monona firefighters will be out asking residents to support the Muscular Dystrophy Association through the annual Fill the Boot campaign Friday, Sept. 20, and Saturday, Sept. 21.

From 3-6 p.m. Friday and from 8:30-11:30 a.m. Saturday, firefighters will be at Monona Drive and Broadway, asking drivers, pedestrians and bikers to fill their boots with funds.

Last year, local firefighters raised about $11,000 for the MDA, and the goal this year is to hit $12,000.

The International Association of Fire Fighters has partnered with the MDA for more than 60 years.
