Mission firefighters host fundraising boot drive Sept. 14 and 21

Donate to musuclar dystrophy at Real Canadian Superstore, Junction, Wal-Mart and Mission Hills

Mission firefighters will be holding out their boots Sept. 14 and 21 to raise money for Muscular Dystrophy Canada.

Members of the Mission Firefighters’ Charitable Society will be at Real Canadian Superstore, the Junction, Wal-Mart and Mission Hill Shopping Centre from 5 to 9 p.m.

Since 1954, Canadian firefighters 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 diseases are life-threatening and presently, there is no cure.

Money raised will be donated to improve the quality of life for people living with neuromuscular disorders by purchasing mobility equipment, providing support services, and funding research.
