South Metro Fire Rescue (SMFR) personnel – including firefighters, administrative staff and family members – collected a whopping $100,154 (not counting the change) for the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) Fill the Boot campaign over Labor Day weekend. Pictured above, they are gathered in front of the Castle Pines King Soopers collecting donations.
Donations go toward funding new treatments, supporting MDA centers and ensuring that 3,800 children get to experience a life-changing summer camp each year at no charge. For more than 60 years, Fill the Boot has been a strong firefighter tradition, helping to give individuals and families with muscular dystrophy hope for a cure.
