Dauphin, Canada

The Dauphin firefighters are getting ready for their Annual Rooftop Campout.

The firefighters are around the community up until the Campout starts on March 15th at the Co-op grocery store and serving coffee at McDonald's on March 16th.

Marie Sorlie, Campout Coordinator, explains the campout.

“We try to raise funds and awareness for Muscular Dystrophy Canada. The firefighters will face the cold of a Manitoba winter camped on the roof of the Dauphin Marketplace Mall and we have other members from other departments joining us for this worthy cause. Each year, Canadian firefighters are champions of the Muscular Dystrophy Canada vision of finding a cure for a lifetime.”

The Firefighters are focusing on a goal of 25 thousand dollars towards the cause.
