You may have seen Wichita Falls firefighters along some busy intersections today holding up boots. Thursday they kicked of the annual Fill the Boot campaign benefiting the Muscular Dystrophy Association.

This year, Wichita Falls firefighters are collecting money to honor Melanie Owen of Wichita Falls. She's a wife, mother, and daughter and suffers from ALS.

Officials say all the money collected stays local and could help find a cure for these devastating diseases.

The campaign ends Saturday.
