Climbing for CFA Sunbury


Well, I’m back in a mad attempt to prove 2019 wasn’t a fluke, also meaning I am also back in the gym a lot more than the past two years.

As the focus of the stair climb is mental health, I’ve had a chance to think about who I am trying to represent – who am I doing this for?

Those that know me also know Amy . And because of her, I’m climbing this year for all the Mums and Dads that have kids with a disability – you can call it special needs if you like.

Having a disabled child can be a draining experience as well as a permanent worry – about their future mainly.

There is joy in there, just like any parent has with their kids. But the ongoing reality of never being an empty nester does take the shine off it.

So I’m highlighting a sector of the mental health landscape and also highlighting to myself that I need to take care.

So far, I've raised $3,136 of my $2,500 fundraising goal.
