Members of the Pratt Fire Department, along with the Muscular Dystrophy Association, will celebrate their 60-year partnership and kick off the fire fighters’ annual Fill the Boot fundraising campaign to benefit children and adults affected by muscle disease throughout the Pratt area.

More than 18 members of the Pratt Fire Department will fan out across the Pratt with boots in hand for this year’s drive on Saturday, Aug. 16th and Sunday, Aug. 17th.

Funds raised through 2014 Pratt Fill the Boot event will help support MDA’s programs of worldwide research, specialized health care 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 Rock Springs Ranch.
