As part of its yearly Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) Fill the Boot Campaign, the Milton Fire Department’s A Shift raised nearly $10,000 June 22. The total raised over four days is now nearly $43,000.

The department is trying to top its 2011 total of more than $60,000, which was second in the state in fundraising.

Milton firefighters will continue their drive July 6.

In just five years, the City of Milton Fire Department has raised more than $221,000 for MDA, which uses the money to aid local children and adults affected by neuromuscular diseases by providing wheelchairs, leg braces, clinic visits, support groups and a chance for children to attend Camp Walk-N-Roll.
