Firefighters hold shooting competition for muscular dystrophy
GRAND ISLAND, Neb. —
Firefighters in Grand Island were strapping up for a good cause on Saturday.
They held their first-ever muscular dystrophy charity shoot to raise funds for those living with MD.
Money raised will go to the Muscular Dystrophy Association and "Operation Warm" which helps buy winter coats for children in need.
"The International Association of Firefighters has raised, I think the last total I saw was $604 million," Jeff Engberg of the Grand Island Fire Department said. "We have never done a charity shoot before and we wanted to do something different this years - an event that we can hold for years to come."
More than 20 firefighters paid up to $80 to register for the shooting competition.
