Firefighters ‘Fill the Boot’

Traffic could be a little snarled at the intersection at 15th Ave and Market St today (Friday) as firefighters raise money for the Muscular Dystrophy Association. This is the annual “Fill the Boot” fundraiser where firefighters stand in the street from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. asking for donations. Drivers are encouraged to toss cash, checks and change into the boots. Since 1954, “Fill the Boot” campaigns have raised more than $300 million for MDA. Today, firefighters hope to raise $100,000. The Seattle campaign helps support UW Medical Center and Children’s Hospital in addition to a summer camp for kids.
