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.
