Up on the rooftop: 2015 Fire Fighter Campouts
Every year Fire Fighters across the country battle the elements – whether they be snow and cold or sun and heat – to take to the roofs of local business and malls to raise awareness and funds for muscular dystrophy. The Rooftop Campout has become an annual event for many Fire Departments and we want to thank them for taking the time to organize and camp to help make muscles move!
We’re captured a sense of what goes on through quotes and tweets from the Rooftop Campouts experience. You too can be part of it – check out Campouts locations here:
“Airdrie firefighters are all smiles as they count down their final hour of the 72-hour Rooftop Campout at the local Boston Pizza…” (Calgary Journal)
“When Chris Ireland, our Muscular Dystrophy Canada Firefighter representative, approached us with the idea of the Rooftop Campout I knew that I wanted to be on that rooftop. It was something new and fresh that still incorporated filling the boot but with a twist and is for a great cause.” Jason Davidson, Sarnia (Day In The Life)
“All of us are paramedics, we’ve worked with it, we’ve seen what it can do to people and their families, so it’s nice to give back.” Amber Gall, Leduc (Global)
