Good Morning Local 1826 & Fire Chiefs!!
I am excited to share that we just returned from our annual MDA/Firefighter Conference in Orlando, and Local 1826 has once again held onto the #1 Boot Drive in Florida, #1 County in Florida, #1 Local and #1 dollars raised per captia, (650+ members) in District 12 of the IAFF!
Another record breaking year, $185,207. This year, the local has put out a goal to raise $200,000 for Carter and all the local families in SWFL living with muscle disease and ALS,
Thank you for your continuing to support our Fill the Boot Campaign. Your support, helps make this possible.
In 1954, the partnership was born—where Firefighters vowed to stand by MDA until a cure was found! We are so proud to have you all as our #1 National and LOCAL sponsor for the MDA. Our families are proud to have you stand with them through their journey and fight to help free them from the harmful effects for muscle disease and ALS.
This year’s Fill the Boot:
- Will continue to help fund groundbreaking research across disease to accelerate treatments and cures.
- Helps MDA care for kids and adults from day one at multidisciplinary MDA Care Centers
- Helps empower families with services and support right here in SWFL
This year’s Fill the Boot Dates will be March 8-10, 2019.
