Claudia and Randy Currie
After the death of Kyle in 2018, , we decided to work with the local community to establish a charity to provide additional finding in support of training for mental wellness in our local professional Firefighter community in HRM.
Retired from private industry, Conny has a personal interest in Fight4Life. After witnessing the devastating effects PTSD can have on first responders, Conny has continued to learn about and dedicate time to the F4L charity in hopes to provide a path of hope to other firefighters, families and friends who are struggling.
