CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Beginning this Friday, local firefighters will take to the streets of Corpus Christi for their annual ‘Fill the Boot’ event.

It takes place each year in support of and in partnership with the Muscular Dystrophy Association.

All money collected will help the MDA save lives and make much-needed resources available to those who face the challenges that come with Muscular Dystrophy, ALS, and other muscle-debilitating diseases.

More than 300 local firefighters will make their way around the Coastal Bend on March 6, 13 and 20 with boots in hand, collecting money from motorists.

For specific locations and times, be sure to check the following Facebook pages: mdasouthtx or CorpusChristiFireDepartment.

Last year, the city set a record by donating more than $120,000 through this collection.
