MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

The Montgomery Fire Department and Muscular Dystrophy Association is celebrating its 60-year partnership during their annual Fill the Boot campaign.

A special event will be held to celebrate the partnership that has lasted for 60 years, and has helped benefit children and adults affected by muscle disease.

The Montgomery Fire Department started their 2014 Fill the Boot campaign in April, and are now relaunching it beginning on Saturday.

Firefighters can be seen around Montgomery at retailers including Lowes, Winn-Dixie, Eastdale Mall, and Wal-Mart.

"Throughout 2014, MDA and fire fighters are celebrating 60 years of proud partnership, joined together in the fight against life-threatening muscle disease," said Angie Jordin, Executive Director of MDA. "Fire fighters do more for MDA and the families we serve than any other group. In the Montgomery area, they spend countless hours every year participating in Fill the Boot drives and at MDA Summer Camp. We're grateful for the support of these inspiring, selfless individuals who have made a profound impact on our families' health, well being and quality of life."

More than 400 members of the Montgomery Fire and Rescue will be stationed around the city with boots in hand for this year's drive.
