We are fortunate to live in a democracy where we can elect our officials. With this privilege, we also have the responsibility to inform ourselves before deciding on the best candidate.

North Lincoln Fire & Rescue is showing its continued support for the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) with the annual “Fill the Boot” fundraising campaign to raise funds to help transform the lives of kids and adults with muscular dystrophy, ALS and related muscle-debilitating diseases.

Continuing a 65-year tradition of giving strength to the MDA community, dedicated fire fighters from Lincoln City will hit the streets or storefronts with boots in hand asking pedestrians, motorists, customers and other passersby to make a donation to MDA on Aug.31 at Highway 101 and SE Devils Lake Road.

“We are thrilled to be working with the North Lincoln Fire and Rescue for another year of Fill the Boot to help provide the funds needed to find treatments and cures for muscular dystrophy, ALS and related diseases that severely limit strength and mobility,” said Fundraising Specialist Amanda Borror. “The dedication of these fire fighters to MDA’s mission is unwavering, spending countless hours both with Fill the Boot and MDA Summer Camp to care for the kids and adults in Lincoln City. We know that their devotion to our families will make this year’s drive a success.”

Funds raised through Fill the Boot events in 2019 will help the MDA save lives and lift those up in need, by providing the MDA with vital resources to advance their mission of driving innovations in science and care for the neuromuscular community. Contributions have helped fund groundbreaking research and life-enhancing programs such as state-of-the-art support groups and Care Centers.

They also help send local kids to “the best week of the year” at MDA summer camp at Macleay Retreat and Conference Center in Salem – all at no cost to their families.

In addition to Fill the Boot drives, fire fighter contributions from year-round local events to help support MDA’s efforts to raise awareness and provide professional and public education about neuromuscular diseases.
