Since 1954, IAFF members have shown an unwavering commitment to defeating muscular dystrophy and related life-threatening diseases. Funds are raised primarily through MDA signature Fill the Boot campaign, in which member fire fighters gather on streets across the country collecting money in their boots from neighbors and passersby. For 60 years strong, our nations heroes have raised more than $558 million to save and improve lives of families fighting muscle disease. Dollars collected in boots throughout the decades are translating into game-changing research progress today.
