Robson FF's Fundraising Phenoms

Robson, BC—Firefighters in Robson continue to flex their fundraising muscles by filling their boots for Muscular Dystrophy Canada. The volunteer fire department raised a whopping $6517 for the organization on March 19th.

“I'm so proud of our amazing group,” said Jeff Grant, Chief of the Robson Volunteer Fire Department.  “For a community of our size to create results like we did is nothing short of incredible. Not only did it feel good doing it, but we continued to build on what are truly outstanding benchmarks.”

In 2014, the department raised $6200, a feat which garnered the team the “Up and Coming Fire Hall of the Year Award” at Muscular Dystrophy Canada’s annual conference.

The following year the team surpassed that amount by raising $6400.

“From executing calls like the professionals we are, to taking training deadly serious, to recognizing our little community of Robson—we can make a big difference if we just decide to do it,” said Grant.

“The Robson firefighters’ ongoing commitment to protecting their community and raising funds for a cause they are passionate about is truly outstanding,” said Andrew Bellerby, the RDCK’s Regional Fire Chief.

Muscular Dystrophy is a hereditary condition that leads to the progressive weakening and loss of muscles.
