Lawton firefighters are gathering money for the Muscular Dystrophy association during the annual event.

You’ll see them outside the Wal-Marts on Quanah Parker Trailway and Sheridan Road.

The campaign has been going on for more than 60 years.

“It’s just a good time. We come out every year and do this. The people like to see us out here. We come out every year and do this... People just need to come out and give to Muscular Dystrophy," said Sgt. Joe Wheeler of the Lawton Fire Department.

Nationwide, the Fill the Boot campaign raised $20 million last year with more than 1,500 fire departments taking part.
