Fill the boot fundraiser

Posted:
STEVENS POINT (WAOW) -

Firefighters in Stevens Point hit the road today, not to fight a fire, but to fight for a cure. 

The annual Fill the Boot fundraiser kicked off earlier today. 

Crews were out collecting money for the Muscular Dystrophy Association.

They hope to raise 8-thousand dollars this year. 

Firefighter Tom Wastart of the Stevens Point Fire Department said, "Most of the money that we raise here stays locally to help out families with their medical supplies and like I said sending kids to camp and it also goes to help find a cure for this."

The event continues tomorrow from 3 to 6 p.m.
