ATLANTA (CBS ATLANTA) -

Throughout the month of October, the Atlanta Fire Rescue Department will be asking local residents and visitors to help fight neuromuscular disease.

MDA is a nonprofit health agency dedicated to curing muscular dystrophy, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and related diseases.

On Friday, firefighters will be out at 431 Flat Shoals Ave. SE collecting donations in a boot.

The donations provide help and hope in many ways:

  • Research - cutting-edge investigation seeking treatments and cures.
  • Clinics - assist with equipment and coping with challenges.
  • Camp- a barrier free week of fun, friendship and laughter for kids.
  • MDA also provides comprehensive health care and support services, advocacy and education.
