Muscular Dystrophy office

The Kannapolis firefighters will be filling their boots with donations to benefit the local Muscular Dystropy Association on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
Dedicated firefighters will be at the intersection of Spider and Supercenter drives (near Wal-Mart) and on Bayfield Parkway near Kannapolis Parkway (near Target) from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. and 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Thursday, 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. and 4-8 p.m. on Friday and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday. They will have boots in hand so that patrons may give their dollars and change in the effort to help firefighters in their support of the MDA.
Funds raised by firefighters enable MDA to continue providing direct services to local children and adults with neuromuscular diseases. In addition to worldwide research programs, MDA provides assistance with the purchase of wheelchairs and leg braces, and offers a summer camp program for children ages 6 to 21 with muscular dystrophy.
Free medical services are also available at the MDA ALS/Neuromuscular Clinic at Carolinas Medical Center for individuals diagnosed with any of the 43 diseases covered by MDA.
Firefighters nationwide are celebrating 53 years as a sponsor of the MDA. For more information, call the local MDA office at 704-663-1181.
