It’s a Lifesaving Tradition

Since 1954, IAFF has supported MDA with unwavering drive and relentless passion.

Because of your support, 11 new drugs for neuromuscular diseases have been approved in the last five years, and so many more are coming. These treatments are life-changing for MDA families where walking, talking and even breathing can be difficult. This could not have been done without IAFF fire fighters like you.

We’re proud to have the IAFF as our largest national partner and are thankful for the thousands of fire fighters who have participated in Fill the Boot drives across America, as well as those who have volunteered countless hours at MDA Summer Camps.

And until a cure is found, we’ll be filling those boots together.
