Fire Fighters

Muscular Dystrophy Canada is extremely fortunate to have an incredible partnership with Fire Fighters across Canada. Fire Fighters have supported Muscular Dystrophy Canada since 1954, delivering an impact that has been felt for decades. Fire Fighters help generate revenue and raise awareness about neuromuscular disorders and the need for funding to support Muscular Dystrophy Canada’s programs and services. Canadian Fire Fighters have a goal of raising $100 million by 2020 to support Muscular Dystrophy Canada’s mission. Fire Fighters are Muscular Dystrophy Canada’s largest network of supporters and we are incredibly thankful for their ongoing dedication and passion.
