Team Party Hardy to #Walk4MD in full Fire Fighter gear
On Saturday, September 26th, Team Party Hardy will walk the 5 km route of the Nanaimo Walk for Muscular Dystrophy like many others in the community. But what makes this group different is that they will be walking in Fire Fighter uniforms, some in the full turn out gear and Self Contained Breathing Apparatus.
Cathy, of Team Party Hardy who will be donning the equipment, took some time to explain why walking in Fire Fighter gear is so important to her and her teammates:
We have been involved in the Walk for Muscular Dystrophy for many years. In 2010 we formed an official team & called it “Team Party Hardy.” Each year we get together, we dress up, we laugh, we cry and we are together with our fundraising family who all want to make a difference. We continue to do what we can to keep the FUN in FUNDRAISING! We are all very excited to take part, do our share & raise funds for our friends who have become our family. Why walk? Why not. As our team shirts say “walking for those who can’t,” and we will continue to until there is no reason to walk.
