Edmonton takes pride in their Fire Fighters and the Edmonton Fire Fighters take pride in supporting Muscular Dystrophy Canada. This year to kick off the successful Rooftop Campout campaign, we will hold the 3rd annual Fire on Ice charity hockey game. The puck will drop on February 27th as the Edmonton Fire Fighters take the ice vs the Oilers Alumni.
The families of Edmonton and surrounding areas are passionate about hockey, which makes a charity hockey game particularly fitting to encourage the communities to open their hearts and their wallets. The main goal of the Fire on Ice event is to raise funds and awareness for Muscular Dystrophy Canada. Our next goal, to make the event as family friendly and exciting as possible as hockey lovers join us at the Leduc Recreation Center to cheer on the two teams of childhood heroes.
I ask my son, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” His answer is always, “A hockey player or a Fire Fighter!” So what a perfect combination for a charity event that is family friendly and encourages the positive message of giving back.
This is my first year on the planning committee for Fire on Ice and the joy of planning an event where the goal is for a positive cause is so rewarding. So whether you like Fire Fighters, hockey, a good cause or all three, join us February 27th for Fire on Ice!
Tickets can be purchased at fireonice.tickit.ca
