Cameron firefighters join "Fill the Boot" effort for MDA

Members of the Cameron Volunteer Fire Department, together with the Muscular Dystrophy Association, will fan out across the Cameron area Saturday with boots in hand for the fire fighters' annual Fill the Boot fundraising campaign to help children and adults fight muscular dystrophy, ALS and related diseases that severely weaken muscle strength and mobility.  Firefighters will stand at intersections in Cameron Saturday collecting cash donations from motorists and others who want to support the cause.

Funds raised through 2016 Cameron Fill the Boot drive empowers families with life-enhancing resources and support, including state-of-the-art support groups and Care Centers, including the MDA Care Center at St. David’s Medical Center in Round Rock, TX.  They also help give more than 30 local kids the opportunity to experience the best week of the year where anything is possible at MDA summer camp at no cost to their families at Camp For All in Burton.
