LUBBOCK,TX- Find your pennies, find your dimes; it is time to 'Fill the Boot.'

360 firefighters from around Lubbock will brave the Lubbock heat and wind this weekend, to collect money for Muscular Dystrophy. 

This is the 60th year for the national fundraiser, and marks more than 10 years here in the Hub City.

Justin Smith is the MDA coordinator for the Lubbock Fire Department.

He said this time they are trying to raise more than $110,000.

Smith said the goal can easily be met, if folks from Lubbock will help out. 

Volunteers will be at various intersections around Lubbock, on Friday and Saturday from 10am-6pm.

They will also have a booth inside the South Plains Mall.
