Climbing for CFA Wollert & District

This year I am participating in the 7th Annual Melbourne Firefighter Stair Climb to help fight depression, PTSI and suicide.
This year we are aiming to raise money for Lifeline, Black Dog Institute and the 000 Foundation to improve support services, fund research, remove stigma and raise awareness of Mental Health Issues.
I am joined by my fellow volunteer firefighters from Wollert CFA & District Brigade so please get behind this worthy cause and help me and my team make a difference.

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 A Esposito in memory of their sacrifice made on that fateful day. Read more about Michael A Esposito.

So far, I've raised $271 of my $500 fundraising goal.
