Mark Unwin

Climbing for CFA Hoppers Crossing

Hi. On September 7th I’ll be climbing 28 floors in 25kg of kit and helping to raise $700,000 to improve support services, fund research, remove stigmas and raise awareness of mental health issues.

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 $6,214 of my $3,000 fundraising goal.
