St Albert Firefighters are gearing up for our 3rd edition of the Rooftop Campout in an effort to raise funds and awareness for Muscular Dystrophy Canada. Our goal this year is $20 000 and we know the generosity of St Albert Residents will help us achieve that and much more. We will be camping out on top of Station 2 in the cold and snow. We invite you to be a part of the excitement and get involved as a supporter of this event. This event kicks off Feb 5 at 9am until Feb 8 at noon.
Each year, Canadian fire departments support local families affected by neuromuscular disorders and have always been champions of Muscular Dystrophy Canada’s vision of finding a cure in our lifetime.
No other group has done more for Muscular Dystrophy Canada throughout our 57-year history than Fire Fighters. Fire Fighter fundraising is our organization’s single most important source of revenue – raising an astonishing $2.5 million last year. Because of the steadfast support of Fire Fighters, we are able to provide services and equipment while relentlessly searching for a cure through well funded research.
St. Albert Fire Fighters have been actively involved with Muscular Dystrophy Canada since 1971, and we are proud of their fundraising efforts, as well as the awareness they create in their community and their province.
With the support of Fire Fighters, Canadians with neuromuscular disorders can continue to lead independent lives and reach their own goals.
