Fire-fighters: be extra vigilant

Help your fire department help Safeway in the fight against muscular dystrophy

 

Surprising a trained emergency responder is a challenge, but a determined crew from Castlegar’s Safeway store is set to do just that on Saturday, August 20.They’ve got tall order – the daring, daylight abduction of Castlegar Fire Department members.

These are big strong men we’re talking about, but the Safeway squad means business.The ransom requested for the release of these dudes is a donation for muscular dystrophy reseach – a cause near and dear to the hearts of firefighters for a very long time.

“On Aug 20 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. we will kidnap our local fire department and put them on our roof for ransom,” states  Castlegar Safeway’s first assistant manager.

“On that day we will need to fund-raise $1,000 to release them back to the public.On the day of the big event there will also be face painting, ice cream floats, and some other fun activities.As always, the fun masks the serious nature of the fundraiser, and the importance of strong support.

So please consider adding your support from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday August 20 at the Castlegar Safeway, 1721 Columbia Avenue.
