 Join Robson Fire Fighters on 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 that will blast off with an opening ceremonies at 11:00am Saturday that you do not want to miss!- see attached schedule of events. 

To show their support for people with neuromuscular disorders, Robson Fire Fighters are organizing the Firefighter Games to raise awareness and funds to help “make muscles move”.   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 mail finale, Mayday Mayday Mayhem….a firefighter obstacle course.   Both evenings will also include live entertainment!

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. 

The money raised by Robson Fire Fighters will be donated to Muscular Dystrophy Canada to support their mission of enhancing the lives of those affected with neuromuscular disorders by continually working to provide ongoing support and resources while relentlessly searching for a cure.  “We’re pleased with the success of last years’ 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 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!
