Reader's view: Duluth area supported ‘Fill the Boot’ campaign

Duluth,Minnesota 55802
Duluth Minnesota 424 W. First St. 55802

The citizens of Duluth and surrounding areas sure supported the three-day, Duluth Fire Fighters Local 101-sponsored “Fill the Boot” fundraiser for the Muscular Dystrophy Association, or MDA. The generous contributions this summer totaled $35,377 — or $3,930 per hour!

It was amazing to be part of an event so strongly supported by the community. The money raised for the MDA stays local and helps families and children right here in the Northland. Job well done. I am both humbled and honored to live and work in this amazing community.
