All weekend at Sunrise Mall, firefighters from all over the Sacramento area are volunteering their time to help raise money for the Firefighters Burn Institute - it's the 24th Annual Fill the Boot for Burns. These fine men and women protect our communities every day, and go above and beyond to raise money for the Institute so they can provide medical care and treatment for burn survivors - as well as provide education to prevent burn injuries. They will be on the streets at Greenback and Sunrise through 6p Sunday 2/11! I have to give a shoutout to Ryan for not only coming in studio with me to promote Fill the Boot - but for bringing me up in the firetruck lift!!! That was a first for me! Luckily I love heights. He even let me control the lift on the way back down!
During the Media Challenge for the Boot Drive, we were able to raise $340 in 30 miutes!! We finished in third place but are so proud of our fellow local media for raising so much money!
I have to give a special shoutout to Andrew, the firefighter who was paired with me for the Media Challenge!
Thank you to all the firefighters and staff at the Burn Institute for such a fun morning!
