You might see firefighters out on local streets for the "Fill the Boot" Campaign.

For more than 60 years, Firefighters have worked with the Muscular Dystrophy Association to raise funds for research.

The Fill the Boot campaign starts this weekend and ends on Sunday the 24th.

Steve Thurber, with the Aboite Township Fire Department says, "The entire City of Fort Wayne will be out on shifts doing their collection.  The County Units will be also out doing collections and it's different times and varying space so you'll see us everywhere."

If you miss the firefighters along the road, you can stop by any fire station in Fort Wayne to donate.  Funds raised from this year's event will help support local Muscular Dystrophy Programs.
