Climbing for CFA Point Cook

Hi Everyone,

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.

I am also dedicating my this year’s stair climb to my dear friend & work colleague Rayan Rodrigues who passed away on 23/08/2022. Rayan has always motivated me and supported my Volunteer Firefighting work with CFA (Country Fire Authority).

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.

Kind regards,

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 N Fodor in memory of their sacrifice made on that fateful day. Read more about Michael N Fodor.

So far, I've raised $984 of my $5,000 fundraising goal.
