WICHITA FALLS, TX -

Members of the Wichita Falls Local 432, along with the Muscular Dystrophy Association, will kick off the annual Fill the Boot fundraising campaign to benefit children and adults affected by muscle disease throughout the Wichita Falls area.

More than 150 members of the Wichita Falls IAFF Local 432 will fan out across the city with boots in hand for this year's boot drive on May 12-13-14 from 11:00 am to 6:00 pm on Thursday and Friday and 9:00 am to 6:00 pm on Saturday, with the primary location being at Kemp and Call Field. 

Funds raised through 2016 in the Wichita Falls Fill the Boot drive will help support MDA's programs of worldwide research, specialized health care services, and day-to-day support.

Wichita Falls Firefighter Corky Scarbrough and MDA patient Daniel Bowen stopped by Newschannel 6 at Noon to encourage everyone to donate when they see the boots!
