CAL FIRE press release

November 3,2014


Mendocino County – On Saturday, November 8, 2014 CAL FIRE firefighters will be out on the streets to raise money for the Muscular Dystrophy Association.

There will be a “Fill-the-Boot” fundraiser set up in Ukiah at the intersection of Airport Road and Applebee’s Restaurant Saturday, November 8, 2014. The “Fill-the-Boot” fundraiser will be from 10am to 3pm. We are asking everyone to come out and help the firefighters support MDA in fighting muscle disease.

When you drop dollars into the firefighter’s boot, you are supporting local MDA services, research for neuromuscular diseases, clinic at UC Davis, summer camp and community education. The MDA does not receive funding from state, federal or local governments, nor does it seek or receive fees for services.

CAL FIRE took on the challenge to support MDA in fighting muscle disease in 2008, statewide. This is Mendocino Unit’s fifth year of involvement with the “Fill-the-Boot “fundraisers. With the help of the community CAL FIRE Mendocino Unit has made over eighteen thousand dollars in donations to the Muscular Dystrophy Association.

Thanks for your support!
