Local 478 Charity Events
Local 478 firefighters have always been involved in a number of charitable organizations, and currently are actively involved with a number of events.
Miracle Match Marathon
The Waco Professional Firefighters Association created the Miracle Match Marathon by partnering with the Be The Match Foundation to raise money and help match bone marrow donors. This year the event will be on January 26th and 27th, 2019 starting in downtown Waco.

MDA Fill the Boot
Perhaps the largest and most popular charity event that firefighters in America are known for these days, is "Fill the Boot". This is done in conjunction with the Muscular Dystrophy Association, raising money that greatly assists in the research, treatment, and patient support provided to those suffering from that horrible disease. The Waco Professional Firefighters Association takes great honor every year in asking citizens and visitors to donate to this great cause. For usually 3 days every year, you will see Waco firefighters throughout the city standing at major intersections, taking donations into bunker boots.
