TRI-CITIES, WA- Kennewick, Richland and Benton County firefighters were in the streets Saturday to collect donations for muscular dystrophy.

The Fill The Boot campaign raised money for the Muscular Dystrophy Association.

“The MDA set a goal for us this year for $20,000, so we're working really hard to meet that goal,” said Tamara Bell, Kennewick firefighter.

Last year the firefighters raised a little over $10,000 for the organization.
