Climbing for CFA Bacchus Marsh

“Seeing a doctor for your cough is just as important as seeing a psychologist for your mental health.” It’s okay, to not be okay.

Currently, a volunteer with Bacchus Marsh, climbing to raise money for mental health awareness, as this lives very close to my heart. I personally know what these firefighters and defence personnel deal with, and understand how important it is fund this cause.

On Saturday 2nd of September 2023, Firefighters and Emergency services personnel from across Australia and the globe will descend upon Melbourne to ascend the gruelling 28 Floors of the Crown Metropol raising vital funds for Cancer Research and Crisis Support!

Our climbers will battle 28 floors in up to 25kg of turnout gear and breathing apparatus as a symbol of the burden of significant health and well-being issues faced by our first responders and their families on a daily basis, some will also be breathing \”on air\” through a self contained breathing apparatus adding a extra level of difficulty to their climb.

We need your help to raise $700,000 to support our beneficiaries, Lifeline, Peter MacCallum Cancer Foundation and 000Foundation

So far, I've raised $628 of my $1,500 fundraising goal.
