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.
