The amazing Fort McMurray Firefighters held a Rooftop Camp Out in April 2013 to help fundraise for local charities and Powerchair Football Canada (PFC).   PFC is a member of the Federation International of Powerchair Football Association (FIPFA).  FIPFA is an international federation working to develop Powerchair football, a version of soccer played by disabled athletes using power wheelchairs.  Powerchair football is played at the local, provincial, national and international level.   During the recent Coastal Cup Powerchair Football Tournament held in Richmond BC, the Fort McMurray firefighters presented a generous donation of $20,000 that will help PFC purchase sports powerchairs that have been specifically designed for powerchair football.  These high performance powerchairs will be provided to members of Canada’s National team and will level the playing field for the athletes, making Team Canada a contender in the Powerchair Football World Cup 2015.

A big THANK YOU goes to the Fort McMurray Firefighters!!!
Thank you
