Firefighters from the Enumclaw Fire Department will be stationed on street corners in Enumclaw for the annual Fill the Boot campaign on June 29.
The Enumclaw Fire Department, as part of the International Association of Fire Fighters, is partnering with the Muscular Dystrophy Association for this one-day event.
Firefighters will be collecting money at the intersections of Cole and Stevenson and Garrett and Griffin.
Last year, over $11,000 was raised for the Muscular Dystrophy Association, and in the past five years, $60,000 has been raised by departments in the area, according to MDA spokeswoman Erica LeSuer.
The Enumclaw Fire Department is one of the top 10 departments in the area in money raised each year, LeSeur said.
The MDA has raised millions of dollars through its partnership with the IAFF and local departments.
The Muscular Dystrophy Association uses the funds to research new treatments for the disease, help families of children with MD, and send local kids with MD to Summer camps, according to LeSuer.
Muscular dystrophy diseases causes weakness and degeneration of muscles, mostly in men. Approximately one male child in every 5,600 to 7,700 are affected with the most common form.
The East Pierce Fire and Rescue will be having their own Fill the Boot fundraiser in August.
