Meet Our Partners (IAFF)
International Association of Fire Fighters
The International Association of Fire Fighters represents the interests of professional fire fighters across North America and Canada. Since 1954, IAFF members have shown an unwavering commitment to defeating muscular dystrophy and related life-threatening diseases. Funds are raised primarily through MDA’s signature Fill the Boot ® campaign, in which member fire fighters gather on streets across the country collecting money in their boots from neighbors and passersby. For 67 years strong, our nation’s heroes have raised more than $672 million to save and improve lives of families fighting muscle disease. Dollars collected in boots throughout the decades are translating into game-changing research progress today.
