The Montreal High Rise Challenge: A spectacular and unique charity event!
Friday, May 16th, at the Stock Exchange Tower
Fearless Fire Fighters, policemen, paramedics and members of the public will soon be celebrating 60 years of involvement!
Imagine that you want to climb a flight of stairs to go meet the love of your life, but you can’t because your muscles won’t let you…. For 60 years now, Fire Fighters from all over Quebec have been putting their hearts to work by organizing a series of events on behalf of Muscular Dystrophy Canada, who steadfastly supports people whose muscles have stopped working. The flagship of these events is the Scott High Rise Challenge, which has been held every year since 1997.
Adrenaline, muscles and heart for a worthy cause.
The Scott High Rise Challenge is the only event of its kind in Canada aimed specifically at emergency workers, but also open to the general public.
