The 2017 Cerebral Palsy Association Stationary Bike Race was a huge success once again this year.

The day ran smoothly with the participation of our fourteen member Fire Fighter team among hundreds of riders, volunteers and donors.

(UFFW contributed $1,500 as a special donation to celebrate our 24th year of participation)

As always we were well represented:
Retired brothers: Jack Funk, Jake VanLeeuwen, John Vosters and Jim Hemphill.

Active Fire Fighters: Garth Rowswell , Bob McBey, Mark Oswald, Leanne MacLean, Lindsey Ingram, Ann Smith, Tim Ringland Jr., Reid Westmacott and Greg Bilous.

Rooftop Campout Day 2

March 16, 2017

What a tremendous day of fundraising out at the 8th annual Firefighter Rooftop Campout for Muscular Dystrophy.

With Global Morning Live and Wheeler in the Morning broadcasting live on location from 6-9, and nearly 40 firefighter volunteers out collecting funds during two seperate road tolls, 4 station was once again a beehive of activity.

Our campers were kept busy with activities hosted by the Osborne Biz all the while doing countless interviews on TV, radio and print.

Our running total at the end of Wednesday night stands at $43,200.

Tomorrow brings another crazy day with CTV’s morning show on location, a morning road toll, and a full day of fundraising for families living with Muscular Dystrophy.
