Four Winnipeg firefighters who spent days camping out atop a fire hall in The Village managed to raise $70,000 for those living with muscular dystrophy. The osborne Village BIZ is a dedicated partner of the annual event nd encourages all businesses to get involved by collecting donations, and taking part in activations on the roof.
The men climbed down Friday after spending four days on top of Osborne Village fire hall at 150 Osborne Street.
The group was out on the corner of Osborne Street and Stradbrook Avenue this week waving and asking people to donate. People in the area also had an opportunity to place donations in a boot the men were lowering from the fire hall roof top.
In its sixth year, firefighter Chad Swayze said the group was hoping to raise $60,000 at this year’s event.
But generous Winnipeggers came through and helped the men surpass that goal.
