Southlake Fire Raises Record Amount for MDA During ‘Fill the Boot’ Campaign

The Southlake Fire Department would like to thank everyone who participated in this year’s Muscular Dystrophy Association “Fill the Boot” campaign.  We are proud to  tell you that with your help, Southlake Firefighters collected $66,143.00 for MDA, the largest amount ever collected by our department exceeding last years total by $10,444.86.

This is the 65th year for “Fill the Boot.”  All of the money collected from your generous donations will serve the greater Tarrant County area. All monies raised go to help fund research for MDA, provide medical equipment, motorized chairs for children and a week at the MDA Summer Camp. MDA’s Summer Camp allows children with neuromuscular diseases the opportunity be a kid and it also provides parents with peace of mind knowing their children are in great hands with caregivers who are dedicated health professionals and trained camp volunteers.  It also gives parents an opportunity to spend special time with the camper’s siblings.

Our department is honored to partner with the Southlake community to continue the fight against Muscular Dystrophy.
