Quonset Days was started as a tribute to Peter Biemans, a loving husband and father, who passed away in August 2009 after a hard fought battle with ALS. As a family, the Biemans had participated in the WALK for ALS but in 2010 their local walk was cancelled due to a lack of organizers. This is when Quonset Days was born. Every penny raised through Quonset Days goes to support the ALS Society of Alberta for client support services in Alberta. It is held annually in July. Since 2010, it has raised over $300,000!
