Climbing for CFA Wallan

Please consider if you can make even the slightest contribution to a cause that is so close to my own heart. I don’t usually push these things too much, but this one is extremely personal.

A battle I never want to revisit, and one no one should ever have to start!!!

On Saturday 2nd September 2017, I’m “Steping up to fight Depression, PTSD and Suicide” by climbing up the 28 floors of Crown Metropol Hotel wearing 25kgs of Turnout Gear and Breathing Apparatus. The Firefighter’s Charity Fund with your help aims to raise $500,000 for Lifeline and the Black Dog Institute to improve support services, fund research, remove stigmas and raise awareness of Mental health issues like depression, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and suicide, especially for those within the Emergency Service and Defence communities..

•3 million Australians are living with depression and anxiety

•1 in 4 Australians will suffer from a mental illness in their lifetime

•Suicide is the leading cause of death for Australians aged between 15 and 44

•3,000 Australians die by suicide every year, an average of eight people every day.

•10% of our Emergency Services suffer from PTSD

•41 returned Australian Diggers have died by their own hand on home soil, which is more than we lost on the battlefield during 14 years of war in Afghanistan

So far, I've raised $60 of my $500 fundraising goal.
