Firefighters hold Fill the Boot fundraiser Tuesday

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Firefighters and lifeguards will spread out across the city Tuesday to raise money for the Muscular Dystrophy Association.

Firefighters will be at busy San Diego intersections to Fill the Boot, and lifeguards will Fill the Fin at area beaches.

Firefighters have teamed up with the MDA for this fundraiser for 40 years.

"There can't be enough research. All the money, all the funds that get raised, go directly for that I mean like most large or other diseases, we're looking for cures and there's a shortage of funding," San Diego Fire-Rescue Assistant Chief of Operation Brian Fennessy

Last year, San Diego firefighters raised $30,000 during the Fill the Boot campaign.
