The Grande Prairie Firefighters Charitable Foundation was busy raising money for muscular dystrophy last month.
Their annual Buck for Luck campaign brought in $6013 this year.
City firefighter Colton Macdonald says the money raised goes to Muscular Dystrophy Canada and then filters back to the Alberta and Grande Prairie chapters.
“For lab treatments and for testing and for working to try and find better treatment for it. And then it also goes to some of the programs (Muscular Dystrophy Canada) has in more of an outreach capacity, which do help local families, and families not only in Grande Prairie, but in Alberta and all across the county,” explained Macdonald.
The money was raised by collecting donations and selling shamrock tattoos at local businesses on St Patrick’s Day.
