Daily Herald report

Last year, Arlington Heights firefighters raised more than $19,300 for the Muscular Dystrophy Association, dedicated to curing muscular dystrophy, ALS and related diseases by funding worldwide research.

This year they are looking to beat that record, holding a Fill the Boot campaign Friday morning at three locations in Arlington Heights, and holding a benefit party Friday night at HOME Bar, 1227 N. Rand Road, Arlington Heights.
