Climbing for CFA Wendouree

Hi All. I’m the Captain of Wendouree Fire Brigade hoping to lead the (much) younger group of firefighters up those stairs. Thanks for all your support for these great charities & to see if I make it!

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 David M Weiss in memory of their sacrifice made on that fateful day. Search and read more about David M Weiss.

So far, I've raised $1,159 of my $1,000 fundraising goal.
