Labor Day weekend, members of the Loudoun County Combined Fire and Rescue System (LC-CFRS) and the Loudoun Career Fire Fighters Association (LCFFA) Local 3756 will join the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) to collect donations for the 2023 “Fill-the-Boot” campaign.
Firefighters will be collecting donations between September 2 – 4, 2023, to support the MDA’s mission and give the Loudoun community the opportunity to make a difference. “Our fire and rescue family remains wholly committed to this great cause and we appreciate the generosity of Loudoun County citizens and visitors that will undoubtedly make this campaign a success,” said System Chief Keith H. Johnson.
The Fill-the-Boot drive is the result of a partnership between MDA and the International Association of Fire Fighters (IAFF). For over sixty years the IAFF has pledged to assist MDA in any way possible until a cure was found to treat this debilitating disease. Research and assistance for individuals suffering from neuromuscular disease can be an incredible financial burden on a family and Loudoun’s first responders are here to support them.
All funds raised by Loudoun County firefighters assist local families affected by one of the forty-three neuromuscular diseases. These donations provide families with a network of specialized clinics, financial aid for assistive equipment, support groups, informative publications, and accessible summer camps for kids.
