The Montana Chapter of the Muscular Dystrophy Association would like to thank the generous citizens of Billings and the surrounding areas for their incredible support of our Fill the Boot campaign that was held on Dec. 14. To the Blue Creek Fire Department that braved the cold at Shipton's Big R and Sportsman Warehouse to raise money for Jerry's Kids, you will never know how much we appreciate your hard work and dedication to all of our families.
Thank you to everyone who stopped to put your spare change into the firefighters' boots as you passed, helping to raise over $1,000 that will assist more than 500 families throughout Montana.
The money from this event will go toward providing services for our clients and their families with neuromuscular diseases. The MDA assists families with purchasing wheelchairs and leg braces; clinics that are held in Billings, Great Falls and Missoula; support groups; and the highlight of our year, summer camp for our "kids" ages 6-18.
Once again the MDA would like to thank the citizens of Billings and, most importantly, our incredible firefighters who make this event so enjoyable and successful!
