Help Robson Firefighters Fill Their Boots

Join Robson Fire Fighters on the Labour Day Long Weekend—September 5th and 6th—as they host the second annual Firefighter Games in support of Muscular Dystrophy Canada. Be sure to attend this FREE family friendly event at Pass Creek Regional Park that will blast off with opening ceremonies at 11:00 am Saturday that you will not want to miss! The Firefighter Games are a series of events that volunteer and professional firefighters compete in. The events are all designed to be highly entertaining, building into the main finale, Mayday Mayday Mayhem….a firefighter obstacle course. Both evenings will also include live entertainment!

To show their support for people with neuromuscular disorders, Robson Fire Fighters hold the Firefighter Games to raise awareness and funds to help “make muscles move.” Since 1954, Canadian Fire Fighters have been helping Muscular Dystrophy Canada fight the battle against muscular dystrophy—a group of over 100 types of neuromuscular disorders characterized by the wasting and progressive weakness of muscles. Over time, many people with neuromuscular disorders are unable to walk, speak, or ultimately breathe. Some disorders are life-threatening and presently, there is no cure.

“We’re pleased with the success of last year’s event but certainly not resting on our laurels, the 2015 games are sure to impress,” says Dustin LePage, MD Canada Chair, Firefighter with RVFD and lead organizer.

It takes a Fire Fighter 56 muscles to put on a boot; it takes YOU to help fill it. By attending the event and dropping your extra change into the boot, you are helping make muscles move in your community - support your local Fire Fighters in the battle against Muscular Dystrophy!
