Climbing for SA CFS Clayton Bay

Hi all, I’m excited to participate in the Melbourne Firefighter Stair Climb on the 2nd of September. I’ll be climbing 28 floors in full structural and BA gear, roughly 25 kilos of kit. This event is raising money for cancer and mental health research. I love being a firefighter!! It is something that I never thought I’d do, but coming out the other side of things, it has been the thing that I have clung to as a proof to myself that I am not only healed but I am thriving. Here is another challenge I can tick off, while also raising money for cancer research. It has been a full circle of healing.

9/11 Memorial

The Melbourne Firefighter Stair Climb remembers the 343 Firefighters that lost their lives in the line of duty on 11th September 2001.

My stair climb race bib will include the name and photo of FDNY Firefighter Ronald P Bucca in memory of their sacrifice made on that fateful day. Search and read more about Ronald P Bucca.

So far, I've raised $375 of my $1,000 fundraising goal.
