Getting The Boot

(Ft. Lauderdale, FL) – That’s Broward Sheriff’s Office Detective Julie Bower (and also TLC’s Policewomen Of Broward County co-star) helping kickoff the annual Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) fill-the-boot campaign on Thursday afternoon with Broward Sheriff Fire Rescue Firefighter/Paramedic Ken Desantis (at left). They were joined by Chief of Department Joseph Lello along with crews stationed at Port Everglades and were out on SE 17th Street. Firefighters will be collecting at various locations through Monday all over Broward County to coincide with the 44th Jerry Lewis Labor Day Telethon. This is the 55th year that firefighters have partnered with and supported the MDA in finding cures for the diseases. The International Association of Fire Fighters  Local 4321 organizes this event with the local MDA and the firefighters. Last year over $18,000 was raised and they hope to surpass that amount this year. All of the money raised in Broward stays in Broward to help those afflicted with neuromuscular diseases.
