Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) -- Fargo-Moorhead Firefighters will be spending the weekend "on duty" on Hornbacher's.

It is time to "fill the boot." And so area firefighters are out all Hornbacher's Stores this weekend, raising money for the muscular dystrophy association.

Fill the Boot started back in the 1950's, when firefighters went door-to-door with canisters, trying to raise money for two boys with the disease.

Tim Binfet, Fargo firefighter, says, "it's good to get firefighters out, and people love to help a good cause, and MDA is a good cause."

Last year, firefighters nationwide raised 27-million dollars. 375-million since the 1950's.
