| August 29, 2014

VFD-Fire-TruckVALDOSTA, GA – The Valdosta Fire Department, along with the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA), will host a special event on Thursday, Sept. 4, at 12 p.m., at VFD Station #1, to celebrate their 60-year partnership in raising money and awareness to benefit children and adults affected by muscle disease throughout the Valdosta area. This event will also kick off the firefighters’ annual “Fill the Boot” fundraising campaign that will take place from Thursday, Sept. 4 to Saturday, Sept. 6, from 3-7 p.m. each day, at the following locations:

  • Wal-Mart Supercenter at 340 Norman Drive and 3274 Inner Perimeter Road
  • All four Winn Dixie Supermarkets in Valdosta

“The Valdosta firefighters are proud to be partners with MDA in the fight against the life-threatening muscle disease,” said Valdosta Fire Chief Freddie Broome. “We hope our efforts will bring some relief—and eventually a cure—to people in our community who are affected by the disease. Every dollar helps.”

Funds raised through the 2014 Fill the Boot Drive will help support MDA’s programs of research, specialized health care services, and day-to-day support for those struggling with the disease. For more information about the VFD “Fill the Boot” Drive, call (229) 333-1835.
