Firefighters nationally have rallied to supported the charitable efforts to help find a cure for the disease of muscular dystrophy that has effected millions in the United States. Please note the history of MDA sponsorship below First national sponsors on board In the early 1950s, the National Association of Letter Carriers and the International Association of Fire Fighters became the two first national sponsors for the Association. The NALC quickly established a nationwide door-to-door campaign for MDA and continues to support MDA as a national sponsor today. The inaugural door-to-door campaign was heralded by a special two-hour, coast-to-coast television show hosted by Martin and Lewis called “Television Party for Muscular Dystrophy Honoring the Letter Carriers of America for Their Volunteer March for Mercy.” In the same time frame, a group of families affected by muscular dystrophy approached Local 718 fire station in Boston to ask professional fire fighters to help fight muscular dystrophy. Responding enthusiastically, the fire fighters took to the streets with their boots in hand to ask greater Boston to make donations that would be used to fight muscular dystrophy. The Fill the Boot® campaign was an instant success, with the IAFF membership passing a resolution to support the Association’s fight against muscular dystrophy until treatments and cures are found. Nearly 60 years later, professional fire fighters and the IAFF continue their tradition of being the No. 1 fundraising organization for MDA.
