MD Client Ambassador Visit

May 6, 2019

Recently, the crew at 11 station rolled out the red carpet for the MB Muscular Dystrophy Client Ambassador. Brayden is a young boy who has a passion for firefighting, and after attending our Rooftop Campout at 4stn earlier this year, asked if he could spend some time with our Technical Rescue team.

A heartfelt THANK YOU to Captain V and his crew for giving Brayden and his family an experience they will not forget. #NeverOffDuty

10th Annual Rooftop Campout Wrap-up

March 22, 2019

TJ Belluk, Rooftop Campout Chair:

The United Fire Fighters of Winnipeg would like to announce the Rooftop Campout for Muscular Dystrophy wrapped up last week raising just over $60,000. 

While this was short of the intended goal, we are very pleased with what was accomplished. Connor Normandin, Eric Dyck, Rhema Idonije and Jon Polson were front and center leading the effort. Retired District Chief Al Bartley even returned for a cameo appearance on the first night. 

Thanks to the many volunteers who braved some good and not so good weather to help with the road tolls. This has always been our main source of fundraising and Winnipeg stepped up again. 

Thank you to the volunteers who were on hand to help with the setup and teardown. 

We hope to see you all back next year.
