Fill the Boot Fundraiser

Friday, June 19th. 8 am to 11 am & 4-6 pm

The Blue Island Fire Department will be at 127th & Kedzie and Vermont & Western

As the Muscular Dystrophy Association’s largest national sponsor, the IAFF fuels MDA’s mission to save and improve the lives of people affected by muscle disease.

Join the Blue Island Fire Department’s efforts for MDA include the organization’s spirited Fill the Boot campaign, in which firefighters hit the streets and ask pedestrians, motorists, and other passers-by to contribute – money in the boot – for MDA. Firefighters also devote countless hours every year at MDA Summer Camp sessions around the country, where thousands of children with muscle disease experience a week of barrier-free fun while gaining confidence and independence.
