Huntley firefighters start "Fill the Boot" campaign Thursday

HUNTLEY – Firefighters from the Huntley Fire Protection District will be near Algonquin and Lakewood roads on Thursday and Friday with boots in hand, asking for donations to support the Muscular Dystrophy Association.

The donation drive represents the district's annual "Fill the Boot" campaign, which supports those affected by muscle disease. The money firefighters raise supports the association's research, health care services and events.

The association and the Huntley fire district have partnered together on fundraisers for the past 60 years. The association is a worldwide non-profit dedicated to finding treatments and cures for muscular dystrophy.

Firefighters will be at the intersection with their boots from 7:30 to 11 a.m., Thursday and Friday.
