The Muscular Dystrophy Association will be hosting the Fill the Boot and Back to School Bash for another year in McPherson. Last year the Fill the Boot fundraiser raised more than $5,500 to raise awareness for muscular dystrophy. The MDA would like to double last year’s total and raise $11,000. This year’s event will happen on Saturday Aug. 19 from 9am-Noon and then from 6pm-Midnight.
This year’s MDA will happen at the intersection of Main Street and Kansas Avenue, as well as gathering donations at Walmart, Dillon’s and on Euclid Street from Ash Street to Elm Street. The event will also have a dunk tank and bounce houses.
