The timing of the fundraiser is no coincidence with the Alabama game this weekend. Firefighters hope the extra traffic will help them reach their $60,000 goal.
BRYAN, Texas (KBTX) – Fill the Boot is back! Bryan firefighters will be out this weekend helping to raise money to help cure muscular dystrophy and to support programs provided by the Muscular Dystrophy Association.
Last year’s Fill the Boot fundraiser was canceled due to COVID, so firefighters are hoping that residents will turn out to support their cause and help them hit their goal this year of $60,000. For more than 67 years, Fill the Boot has been a strong firefighter tradition – giving families with muscular dystrophy in hometowns across America hope for the future and support for today.
“Let’s continue to fight for change against muscle disease and I know that for a fact that our friends and our families in the Brazos County are going to step up and we’re going to hit our goal this year,” said Bryan Firefighters Association President Daniel Buford.
