Climbing for CFA Wonga Park

This year I will be participating in the Melbourne Firefighter Stair Climb in honour of my beautiful friend Kylie Laurie and her family…. who tragically lost their very much loved son and brother Matt in 2021. On September 2nd 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. Together if we can keep Matts memory alive and help save one life in honour of Matt it would mean so very much.

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.

So far, I've raised $0 of my $1,000 fundraising goal.
