CAPE CORAL, Fla. - Firefighters are filling the boot to boot muscular dystrophy. Cape Coral firefighters collected donations Friday at intersections across the city.

Their goal is to raise $35,000. That money will go to the Muscular Dystrophy Association, a non profit dedicated to curing the disease. 

"We all try to rotate and raise money and everything for the MDA, and every station is going out in the morning this morning for about four hours," said firefighter Matthew D'Andrea.

The firefighters will be back on the street again this weekend. 

Last year, they raised more than $30,000 dollars. That money helped hundreds of people right here in southwest Florida!

Firefighters will collect donations from passersby at the intersections of Veterans & Santa Barbara, Cape Coral Parkway & Del Prado, Del Prado & Pine Island, Del Prado & Hancock Bridge Parkway, Del Prado & Veterans Parkway, Chiquita & Cape Coral Parkway, Diplomat & Del Prado Boulevard, Pine Island & Nicholas, Pine Island & Burnt Store Road, Del Prado & Kismet on March 22, 23, and 24.
