Climbing for SA CFS Compton

Hi, I’m Corey Crafter, and this is my 5th year competing in the Melbourne Firefighter Stair Climb.

On September 10, I will be climbing the 28 floors of the Crown Metropol, wearing 25 kgs of turnout gear.

On average, 3046 Australians lose their lives to suicide each year.

This year I, along with others aim to raise $600,000 for mental health, raising money for Lifeline, Fortem and the 000 Foundation, to improve support services, fund research, remove stigmas and raise awareness of mental health issues, such as depression, post traumatic stress injury and suicide.

I have set my goal to raise a minimum of $1000, and also get to the top of the stairs in under 9 minutes, 36 seconds to beat my quickest time up the stairs.

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 John J Florio in memory of their sacrifice made on that fateful day. Read more about John J Florio.

So far, I've raised $1,111 of my $1,000 fundraising goal.
