Climbing for CFA Cranbourne

Keep the long hair or Cut it?
In honour of my 10th Fire Fighter Stair climb, my hair is on the chopping block!
Keep the 85cm long hair? or Chop it short like in the picture?

If you are kind enough to donate a dollar or 2, please leave a message of either Keep or Cut… the most votes received by 10:30hrs on Saturday 2nd of September will determine the fate of my hair and I may have a new look by the end of the day.
(If the locks are cut, they will be donated to Hair with Heart, a program making wigs for young people battling cancer, alopecia or other medical conditions.)

This year’s theme is raising funds for Cancer Research & Crisis Support.
We will climb 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,
All donations are tax deductible.
Many of you have asked and yes the rumour is true… Pink Tutu version 3.0 complete with LED lights will be there.

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 Brian G McAleese in memory of their sacrifice made on that fateful day. Search and read more about Brian G McAleese.

So far, I've raised $850 of my $500 fundraising goal.
