FORT WAYNE, Ind. (21Alive) – While the ice bucket challenge has raised awareness for ALS research you can help raise money for MDA research.

To help out with the donations, ABC will be airing a 2 hour MDA telethon tonight starting at 9:00.

Churubusco firefighters were out this past week and raised $4700 for the charity cause.

And Fort Wayne firefighters did their part too, holding up boots at intersections around the area. It's all a part of the "Fill the Boot" program.

Last year firefighters raised $98,000. This year FWFD raised nearly $114,000

The MDA “Show of Strength” airs tonight on 21Alive at 9 p.m.
