October 25-27, 2008, members of the Titusville Fire and Emergency Services Department will be offering their "boots" for community donations in support of the Muscular Dystrophy Association.  Since 1954, the fire service has been an integral partner in seeking support for MDA research and programs.  The breakthroughs in the last decade in the areas of research, treatment and equipment used to support the victims of muscular dystrophy were possible only through the generosity and compassion of local communities like Titusville.   "Our department's goal this year is to raise at least $7,500," noted Fire Chief Chuck Bogle, "and we urge our citizens to consider helping with this worthy cause." 

Founded in 1950, the Muscular Dystrophy Association is a voluntary health agency working to defeat neuromuscular diseases through programs of worldwide research, comprehensive services, and far-reaching professional and public health education.  More than 1 million Americans are affected by neuromuscular diseases and about 250,000 have some form of muscular dystrophy.  Included in the more than 40 neuromuscular diseases covered by MD are nine forms of muscular dystrophy, amyotrophic lateral scleriosis (ALS or Lou Gehrig's diease), spinal muscular atrophy and others. 

The Muscular Dystrophy Association is funded almost entirely by individual, private voluntary contributions.  It seeks no fees from those it serves and dedicates 78.4 cents of every dollar it spends directly on program services.  M.D.A. was the first nonprofit agency to be recognized by the American Medical Association with a Lifetime Achievement Award for significant and lasting contributions to the health and welfare of humanity.

Titusville Fire and Emergency Services urges any potential contributors to view M.D.A.'s website and annual report for more detailed information. 

If you are unable to visit one of these locations, donations can be made at Fire Headquarters, 550 South Washington Avenue or mailed to Titusville Fire and Emergency Services, Post Office Box 2806, Titusville, Florida  32781-2806.  Please make out the check to the Muscular Dystrophy Association. 

Thank you, Titusville, for your support!
