Firefighters filling their boots for muscular dystrophy

Eau Claire, Wis. (WEAU) - It’s that time of the year where area firefighters show that boots aren't just made for walking.

This year's Fill the Boot donation drive is underway in Eau Claire. Eau Claire firefighters are collecting donations at grocery stores around the city. All the money goes to help fight muscular dystrophy.

Firefighters say donating is a great way to help local families fight the debilitating disease. Firefighter Dave Pekol told us Thursday "I'm glad that the majority of this money with local families here, and I'm glad that I don't have to deal with it personally but I'd like to do my part."

You still have time to help out, the firefighters will be accepting donations Friday from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.
