Arlington Heights Fire Department firefighter Rick Stecki working the fundraiser for MDA for the 2012 drive, which raised a record over $19,000 (Photos from MDA “Fill the Boot” last year …).

The Arlington Heights Fire Department and the Muscular Dystrophy Association will be holding its AHFD/MDA Boot Drive from 6:30-10:30 a.m. and 2:30-6:30 p.m. Friday, May 3, 2013.

Firefighters will be out “Filling the Boot” at the major intersections in Arlington Heights: Palatine and Arlington Heights roads; Northwest Highway and Arlington Heights Road; and at the downtown Arlington Heights train station, collecting to raise funds for Muscular Dystrophy.

Last year, the fire department set a record and raised more than $19,000 for MDA, and they are looking to beat that total with your help.

The DRIVE, 97.1 FM, will be at the corner of Palatine and Arlington Heights roads from 7-9 a.m. offering support and giving away prizes to people who make a donation to MDA.

Ted Peterson, AHFD MDA coordinator, sets up an MDA banner at Mariano’s Fresh Market at closing time last night in preparation for today’s fundraising drive (Photos from MDA “Fill the Boot” last year …).

MDA works directly in communities nationwide. Individuals, who are affected by more than 43 neuromuscular diseases, are eligible to receive an array of services ranging from specialized health care to summer camp retreats for young adults.

MDA’s worldwide research program represents the largest single effort to advance knowledge of neuromuscular diseases and to find cures and treatments for them. Due to the direct contributions of generous individuals and organizations, all MDA services are provided without cost to those served.
This year, the Arlington Heights Fire Department will also be hosting an AHFD/MDA Benefit from 7-11 p.m. Friday, May 3, at Eddie’s Restaurant and Tavern, 10 E. Northwest Hwy., in downtown Arlington Heights. There will be a 50/50 raffle, along with an auction, with 100 percent of the proceeds going to MDA.
