Michael J. Ryan, Mayor of Sunrise, will also be sharing thoughts. Representatives from the cities of Sunrise, Tamarac, Coral Springs, Margate, Coconut Creek, Lighthouse Point, Lauderhill and Oakland Park confirmed their plans to attend. Hundreds of members of Local 3080 will fan out across the county with boots in hand for this year’s drive on August 26-Sept. 2.

Funds raised through the 2014 Fill the Boot events will help support MDA’s programs of worldwide research, specialized healthcare services and day-to-day support , which includes sending children affected by muscular dystrophy and related diseases to a weeklong, barrier-free MDA summer camp at Gold Coast Christian Camp in Lake Worth.

As the Muscular Dystrophy Association’s largest national sponsor, the IAFF fuels MDA’s mission to find treatments and cures for life-threatening muscle diseases. The IAFF is a major contributing sponsor of the MDA Show of Strength Telethon, and IAFF contributions from charity baseball games and other local events help support MDA’s efforts to raise awareness and provide professional and public education about neuromuscular diseases.

IAFF support for MDA began in 1954 when the organization committed by proclamation to support MDA until a cure is found, and the organization’s unwavering commitment to MDA has remained strong to this day. The IAFF raised $100,000 for MDA in 1955, and $1 million in 1970, and firefighters continue to raise the bar in their fundraising efforts. In 2013, more than 100,000 fire fighters participated in Fill the Boot events across the country and raised $26.2 million. To date the IAFF has raised $530 million for MDA.
