Coming to Australia for the first time, “Fill the Boot” is a relay involving fire men and woman across Australia representing all state and rural services to raise awareness and much needed funds in support of the Muscular Dystrophy Foundation.

International comedian and global patron for Muscular Dystrophy Foundation Jerry Lewis initiated the ‘Fill the Boot’ firefighters relay which has been staged successfully in the US and Canada for over 50 years, raising millions of dollars for Muscular Dystrophy.

Australian firefighters have now taken up the baton and many have already begun fundraising in the lead up to the Fill The Boot relay event.

Fighting Muscular Dystrophy together

Fill the Boot has been running for over 50 years raising funds for Muscular Dystrophy in the USA and Canada. This proud partnership was initiated by Jerry Lewis who has been National Chairman of MDA in the USA for over 60 years. Jerry Lewis has a deep love and respect for our Australian firefighters. As International Patron for Muscular Dystrophy Foundation Australia he is an enthusiastic supporter of Fill the Boot here in Australia. Read More
