The Surrey Firefighters Charitable Society presented a cheque for $10,000 to Muscular Dystrophy Canada.
Jag Tak, and resident of Surrey and uncle to two clients with Muscular Dystrophy Canada, helped receive the cheque along with Alyssa Goad, manager of revenue development of Muscular Dystrophy Canada.
The money raised by Surrey firefighters will go towards improving the quality of life for thousands of British Columbians, like Jag’s nephews, living with neuromuscular disorders, a disease characterized by the wasting and progressive weakness of muscles that control body movement.
Some disorders are life-threatening and there is presently no cure.
Funds raised will be used to purchase mobility equipment, provide support services, and fund research, which will one day lead to a cure.
Since 1954, fire fighters in Canada have been supporting Muscular Dystrophy Canada and have generously given their time and energy to raise millions of dollars to fight the battle against muscular dystrophy.
