Muscular Dystrophy Canada
Posted On: Apr 18, 2013
Canadian Fire Fighters have played an integral role for Muscular Dystrophy Canada since 1954, when a group of parents with children who were affected by Muscular Dystrophy approached a Fire Department and requested assistance in raising funds. With the Fire Fighters leading the way, Muscular Dystrophy Canada conducted the first residential canvass in Toronto, and raised more than $200,000 for research. The International Association of Fire Fighters (IAFF) pledged their continuing support "until a cure is found."

Since that time, Muscular Dystrophy Canada has become a National Organization supported by more than 600 Fire Departments and Associations across Canada, who currently raise over $2.8 million dollars annually – for a total of $64.1 million since 1954.

Strathcona County Firefighters became officially involved with Musculary Dystrohy Canada in 1982, and have continued to grow in our support of the estimated 50,000 Canadians with neuromuscular disorders. Annual fund raisers such as the Fire Fighters Car Wash, Roof Top Campouts, and boot drives help us work toward our fundraising goals to this organization. Mike Nicholson a Lieutenant with local 2461 is the western regional chairperson of M.D.C.
