‘Fill the Boot’ event begins today for Enid firefighters

Enid News and Eagle

ENID, Okla. — Enid Fire Department will conduct its annual “Fill the Boot” event this holiday weekend, today through Monday.

The fundraiser benefits research and local services for the Oklahoma City Chapter of the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA).    

The Fill the Boot tradition began more than 50 years ago.  

MDA is a voluntary health agency that works in local communities to combat neuromuscular diseases through basic and applied scientific investigation, local comprehensive programs of medical services and clinical care, and widespread professional and public health education. MDA seeks no government or United Way funding or fees from those it serves. The association’s programs are funded almost entirely by individual, private contributions.
