It’s MD Boot Drive Season!

It’s MD Boot Drive Season!

Every year, thousands of Fire Fighters across Canada organize “Fill the Boot” campaigns for Muscular Dystrophy Canada.

Look for Richmond Fire-Rescue members at the Ironwood Mall on Steveston Highway and No. 5 road and the Blundel Centre at No. 2 Road and Blundell.

We will be collecting for MD October 10 and 11 and October 24th and 25th between 9 a.m and 5 p.m.

Fire Fighters ask members of the public to place voluntary donations in their boots.

In 1954 the founder of MDC, Dr. David Green wanted to raise money to help fund research for his son and other clients impacted by neuromuscular disorders. He reached out to the Toronto Fire Fighters to ask for help, and a tradition began. Since 1954, Fire Fighters have been Muscular dystrophy Canada’s largest network of supporters, delivering an impact that has been felt for decades.
