Firefighters Staying in Tent Until Goal is Reached

After nearly 24 hours camping on the rooftop of the Osborne Street firehall, Winnipeg firefighters are trying to raise more money for charity than their counterparts in Edmonton did.

Firefighters are taking donations for Muscular Dystrophy Canada and hope to raise $50,000. The event is set to only run until Friday, but the guys are determined to stay until their goal is reached.

A small group of firefighters began camping out Monday morning and will operate in shifts.

By late Monday, almost $7,000 had been raised.

If you’d like to make a donation, you can do so at any Winnipeg firehall or online.
