Firefighters have been doing the fundraiser for more than 60 years.

“It’s a great time to be a part of this fight. This is a horrible neuro-muscular disease that the people that are afflicted with it have to deal with every day.” Denver Fire Department Cmdr. C.J. Haberkorn said at the Capitol.

More than 6,000 firefighters will be posted all over the state starting Thursday for “giving muscular dystrophy the boot.”

Part of the funds will help dozens of local children go to an Muscular Dystrophy Association summer camp at no cost to their families.
