It's time to start filling the boot. Sunday was the kick-off to the Muscular Dystrophy Association's Fill the Boot program here in Rockford. A kick-off party was held before the Rockford Riverhawks baseball game at Marinelli Field.
During the Fill the Boot program, firefighters can be found throughout the city, on street corners, grocery stores, festivals, and more, asking you to fill their boots with contributions. Those contributions are then given to the Muscular Dystrophy Association.
All firefighters and their families were invited to enjoy a picnic and the baseball game as thanks for their help with the program.
