Fire fighters ‘fill their boots’ for a good cause

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — New Hanover County Fire Rescue ‘filled their boots’ at several locations beginning Friday in an effort to raise money for the Muscular Dystrophy Association.

Fire fighters near the Harris Teeter off of Carolina Beach Road stood outside the store and collected money in their work boots from cars passing through. They said the goal is to beat the $51,000 they raised last year for the MDA.

“Muscular dystrophy affects people everywhere. There is not an area in the country that is not affected by muscular dystrophy somehow,” said New Hanover County Fire Rescue Lieutenant Ben Bobzien. “We have many local families here in the Cape Fear area that our office supports. We are just helping support those families.”

Muscular Dystrophy degenerates the muscles in a person’s body over a period of time. For over 50 years, fire services nation-wide have helped fight this disease by backing the MDA through similar fundraisers.
