When the boots come out this weekend, Langley Township firefighters will be asking people to give what they can.
On Friday and Saturday, firefighters from all seven Township firehalls will be out in the community, boots in hand, to collect donations for the Muscular Dystrophy Association of Canada.
The boot drive is held each year to raise funds to fight muscular dystrophy, a neuromuscular disorder that weakens and wastes away the muscles that control body movement.
On Friday evening and all day Saturday, fire crews will be in each Township community, in grocery stores, pubs, restaurants, coffee shops, and at the Langley Events Centre, to encourage the public to help improve quality of life for those living with neuromuscular disorders.
Funds raised will help purchase mobility equipment, provide support services, and fund research which will one day lead to a cure to MS.
