Fire Fighters brave the elements for MD

Guelph Rooftop Campout 2016

Guelph Rooftop Campout 2016

Amongst the numerous ways Fire Fighters support Muscular Dystrophy Canada the Rooftop Campouts has become a very popular winter fundraising event.  It’s been over a decade since Rooftop Campouts were introduced in Alberta as another way for Fire Fighters, who have partnered with us since 1954, to challenge their communities to raise awareness and funds for Muscular Dystrophy Canada.  Rooftop Campouts have expanded nationwide and you can find one in every province throughout Canada.  Fire Fighter participants will endure below freezing temperatures, or opt for blistering summer heat, inclement weather, and whatever else nature throws their way during multi-day Rooftop Campouts.

How has Muscular Dystrophy Canada helped us? They have been an integral part of every parent–school meeting, providing teachers and students with important facts about muscular dystrophy. They also were there to explain the government assistance forms and help with the application process.
