On Sunday, August 13th, the Colts will team up with Indianapolis Firefighters Local 416 to host their annual cash collection prior to the Colts vs. Lions game. From 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., volunteers will be collecting cash from fans to "fill their boots" for the Muscular Dystrophy Association. Donations will be collected at the Colts Community Collection Stations, presented by Toyota, located outside each of the Lucas Oil Stadium gates.
All proceeds will be donated to the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA). Collected funds will be used toward research efforts and nationwide programs to help individuals with neuromuscular diseases, as well as their families.
