Dauphin Fire Department has announced that they hit their fundraising goal of five thousand dollars for this year's edition of 'Fill the Boot" campaign.

Fire Chief Cam Abrey says proceeds from this year's Fill the Boot campaign are once again earmarked for Muscular Dystrophy Canada.

"Internationally, Muscular Dysrophy has been a charity of choice for firefighters since 1954.  I believe since 1976, the Dauphin Fire Department has partnered with M-D Canada in fundraising efforts.  And over those years, it has been a lot of contributions made by our community towards such an overwhelming organization."

Abrey is very excited to hit that goal, and thanks local residents for their support.

"Without your support, we would have never hit our goal, and the monies that are raised are used to purchase equipment for those that have been diagnosed with Muscular Dystrophy.  Your support is going a long way towards helping these people live a comfortable life."

Local firefighters and Sparky the Dog were stationed at both the Dauphin Marketplace Mall and the Dauphin Co-op over several weekends in March to collect donations towards this cause.
