MDA For Strength Independence & Life

Ways to Get Involved

Together with our generous supporters, MDA is fighting to free kids and adults from the harm of muscle-debilitating diseases so they can live longer and grow stronger. We need caring individuals like you to help us bring more treatments, the best care and life-changing support to families today.

International Association of Fire Fighters

 

The International Association of Fire Fighters represents the interests of professional fire fighters across North America. 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 60 years strong, our nation’s heroes have raised more than $558 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.

"With MDA, the IAFF’s support is not going to come to an end until the need for MDA doesn’t exist."

Harold A. Schaitberger, IAFF General President
