September 9 • 2020

The Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) has announced the refresh of its legendary Jerry Lewis MDA Telethon, with Kevin Hart joining as host.

The MDA Kevin Hart Kids Telethon will be a two-hour special airing globally on Saturday, October 24, 2020, at 8:00 p.m. ET (streaming partners to be announced), giving audiences the opportunity to support the essential work of the Muscular Dystrophy Association.

“Because the IAFF has had an important role in the MDA Telethon of year’s past, we will have an opportunity to shine on the return of this iconic experience as well,” says General President Harold Schaitberger. “As we continue to the Fill the Boot for MDA we are excited to be a part of this event.”

There’s also still time to be part of the new Virtual Fill the Boot campaign and to continue to support MDA and the more than 250,000 people living with neuromuscular diseases across the country. Our Virtual Fill the Boot toolkit has everything you need to get started, including social media graphics, a sample press release, fundraising ideas and more.
