" 60 Years Strong "


Saturday November 15th  9am-1pm

Intersection of Springs Road and Sulphur Springs Road

Members of the St. Stephens’ Fire Department, along with the Muscular Dystrophy Association, will celebrate their 60-year partnership and kick off the fire fighters' annual Fill the Boot fundraising campaign to benefit children and adults affected by muscle disease throughout the Catawba County area.  St. Stephens Fighters will be out with boots in hand for this year’s drive on Saturday, November 15th at the intersection of Springs Rd and Sulphur Springs Rd for this year’s Fill the Boot drive.

Funds raised through the 2014 St. Stephens Fire Department Fill the Boot event will help support MDA's programs of worldwide research, specialized health care services, and day-to-day support – which includes sending children affected by muscular dystrophy and related diseases to a weeklong,barrier-free MDA summer camp at Camp Bethelwoods in York SC.  The Muscular Dystrophy Association's partnership with fire fighters nationwide  fuels MDA's mission to find treatments and cures for life-threatening muscle diseases.  In 2013, more than 100,000 fire fighters participated in Fill the Boot events across the country and raised $26.2 million.
