Lowan Sist

Climbing for CFA Ferntree Gully

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 $1,780 of my $2,500 fundraising goal.

    Good Point VP! Sure they are related. Thanks so much your support
