BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - Firefighters took off their boots today to help raise money to fight muscular dystrophy Friday.
The money raised will be used to send kids with muscular dystrophy to camp and to be able to buy medical equipment.
"We're just out here kind of playing Frogger, running around between the cars when they stop for red lights and trying to get as much money in as we can," said Chief Scott Dragoun.
Firefighters hoped to raise $40,000 by the end of the day.
"We get to come out here and see the public, and the public's really positive, and to see the amount of money we can raise in such a short period of time really makes it special," said Chief Dragoun.
"My family has been doing it for three years and we enjoy it so much," said Emma Franklin from Muscular Dystrophy Survivors.
Five-year-old Rylie has a form of muscular dystrophy that prohibits her from walking or standing.
"I didn't fill the boots, I just gave out stickers," said Rylie.
Despite their physical limitations, Rylie and family members of other survivors remain positive.
