Grab your spare change, fill a firefighter's boot and help save lives.

Some Lexington Firefighters are volunteering their time to raise money for the Muscular Dystrophy Association.

They'll fill boots with donations outside of Walmart in Hamburg and Walmart on Nicholasville Road the next two Sundays.

The community is invited to make donations at the sites August 26th and September 2nd from 10:00am to 6:00pm.

The money raised will support MDA Research and Central Kentucky families coping with muscle diseases.

Meanwhile firefighters say they're grateful for the community support.

ABC 36 is proud to bring you the MDA's 'Show of Strength 2012' telethon.

It will be a night of entertainment, information and inspiring stories.

Tune into the telethon on ABC 36 on Sunday, September 2nd from 8:00pm to 11:00pm.
