Climbing for CFA Boronia

After a 6 year hiatus, I’m back with the Boronia CFA crew, doing the 2022 stair climb. I think we’ve decided to go down rather than up this time.
Fundraising for a worthwhile cause (depression/PTSD) with reputable charities. And it’s tax deductible. Ace.

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 Jonathan L Ielpi in memory of their sacrifice made on that fateful day. Read more about Jonathan L Ielpi.

So far, I've raised $580 of my $1,000 fundraising goal.
