Jared Lapsley

Climbing for CFA Boronia

Hi. On September 2nd I’ll be climbing 28 floors in 25kg of kit and helping to raise $500,000 to improve support services, fund research, remove stigmas and raise awareness of mental health issues.

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

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

So far, I've raised $1,153 of my $1,000 fundraising goal.

It all comes down to Saturday, and either, you climb with the brigade, or you're gonna crumble. Breath by breath, step by step. Until you're finished. I know the training has been like hell Jared. And, you can stop half way up and get the shit kicked out of you, or you can fight your way up. You can climb outta hell... one step at a time. Now I can't do it for ya, I'm too far away. But one thing I can tell you is that climbing is a game of steps, so is firefighting. Because in either, life or firefighting - the margin for error is so small. I mean, one half a step too late or too early and you don't quite save it. One half second too slow, too fast and you don't quite save, them. The steps you need are right in front of you. Step by step, left foot by right foot you will fight for that next step. I know you will tear yourself and everyone else in the Boronia brigade to pieces for that step. Claw with your toenails for that step. Because we know when you add up all those steps, that's gonna make the difference in reducing depression, PTSD and suicide! Between living and dying! I'll tell you this, with every step you take it's the guy whose willing to die whose gonna get to the top. And I know, the reason you will get to the top is because you're still willing to fight and die for that next step, because that's what living is, the 28 flights of stairs in front of your face. Now I can't make you do it. You've got to look at the firefighter next to you, look into his eyes. Now I think ya going to see a guy who will climb to the top with you. Your gonna see a guy who will sacrifice himself for the Boronia CFA, because he knows when it comes down to it your gonna do the same for him. That's a fire brigade, Jared, and either, you climb, now, as a brigade, or you will die as individuals. That's firefighting Jared, that's all it is. Now, what are you gonna do?
