Climbing for CFA Somerville

On the 7th September 2024 I’ll be climbing 28 floors in 25kg of kit and helping raise $750,000 for Lifeline, Peter MacCallum Cancer Foundation and the 000 Foundation to improve support services, fund research, remove stigmas and raise awareness of Mental health issues like depression, Post Traumatic Stress Injury and Suicide, especially for those within the Emergency Service and Defence communities. Our contribution to the Peter MacCallum Cancer Foundation supports research, education and real treatments for those suffering cancer.

I am honored to participate and to raise money in memory of my cousin Travis O’Conner, who was a dedicated member of the CFA and bravely battled cancer. This climb is not just a physical challenge, but a heartfelt tribute to his strength, courage, and the enduring impact had on all of us, family, friends and especially to his son Kellen O’Conner who he loved Dearly.

Every step I take is a step towards fighting this devastating disease and supporting those affected by it. Your encouragement and donations will mean the world to me and will help keep Travis O’Conners spirit alive through this meaningful cause.

Thank you for your support and generosity.
