Due to the recent increase in the number of COVID-19 cases and to comply with all provincial health authority orders, Alberta Fire Fighters have had to make the difficult decision to cancel their annual in-community Rooftop Campout campaigns in support of Muscular Dystrophy Canada (MDC) this year. Unfortunately, the needs of those impacted by neuromuscular disorders cannot be cancelled.
MDC is very fortunate to have Fire Fighters on the frontlines in Alberta, as well as on the frontlines for MDC clients. Since 1954 fire fighters have been ‘shaking the boot’ for MDC and Canadians impacted by neuromuscular disorders. To date, Fire Fighters have raised close to $100M to provide MDC programs and services including; replying to complex inquiries related to COVID-19, providing emotional support, supporting grants for research initiatives to find a cure, and funding essential equipment.
This year, due to COVID-19, MDC Fire Fighter revenue has seen an over 75% decrease. While they may not be able to be out in public in the usual way, Alberta Fire Fighters want to maintain the tradition of helping to fill the boot in 2021 by raising funds ‘virtually’ this year.
By purchasing your 50/50 raffle ticket today, you will be helping Fire Fighters continue over 65 years of tradition and support for those impacted by over 160 neuromuscluar disorders in Alberta.
