Members of the Bemidji Fire Department kicked off the firefighter’s annual Fill the Boot fundraising campaign during the Bemidji Jaycees Water Carnival Grand Parade.
According to a release, the effort is to help the Muscular Dystrophy Association, which works to find treatments and cures for MD, ALS and other diseases that severely limit strength and mobility.
Bemidji Fire raised $3,351.06 for the MDA during the parade.
“Funds raised through the 2021 Bemidji Fire Boot event empower families with life enhancing resources and support many children and their families. It also allows many children and families to partake in the MDA’s summer camp located in Maple Lake.”
