Climbing for CFA Glengarry

Hi. On September 10th I’ll be climbing 28 floors in 25kg of kit and helping to raise $600,000 to improve support services, fund research, remove stigmas and raise awareness of mental health issues.

Please help me “Step up to fight depression, PTSI and suicide” by sponsoring me below.

Thanks to our sponsors, 100% of every dollar donated will go to mental health.

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 Michael E Roberts E 214 in memory of their sacrifice made on that fateful day. Read more about Michael E Roberts E 214.

So far, I've raised $425 of my $1,000 fundraising goal.
