 2015 Muscular Dystrophy Boot Drive to Honour Jordan Wright

Pitt Meadows, BC – Each year,firefighters from the Pitt Meadows Fire & Rescue Service collect donations throughout Pitt Meadows on behalf of Muscular Dystrophy Canada’s Annual “Fill the Boot” Campaign. This year’s Boot Drive on Saturday, September 26 will pay special tribute to Jordan Wright, a young man who was a close friend of Pitt Meadows Fire & Rescue Service who enjoyed participating in this annual event with the department, and who recently lost his life to MD. 

Proceeds from this annual fundraiser will go directly towards helping those living with muscular dystrophy by providing them with the essential services they need to live healthy, active and independent lives.  

“Jordan was a special part of our MD fundraising campaign each year, and we’re really missing him this year,” said Assistant Fire Chief Brad Perrie.

“We really want citizens to support our efforts in a big way to pay tribute to this young man who lost his battle with Muscular Dystrophy. But we will continue to fundraise for this organization in an effort to find a cure for this disease so that others may have a chance.” 

Pitt Meadows Fire & Rescue Service members will be at the following locations on September 26 throughout the day, and citizens are encouraged to take a moment to stop and donate to this worthy cause: 

Meadowtown Centre Mall – Between 10am and 3:30pm outside of the Real Canadian Superstore and the BC Liquor Store and then between 8pm and 9pm outside of the Cineplex Odeon Theatres.
