Climbing for CFA Rowville

Hi. 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.

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.

Mental health is something I feel strongly about, having been supported through my own challenges but also finding out too late to help someone else.
I’m climbing – as unlikely a candidate as I am, to stand up against the stigma and stereotypes because we all have mental health to look after.

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 Gary P Geidel in memory of their sacrifice made on that fateful day. Read more about Gary P Geidel.

So far, I've raised $417 of my $1,000 fundraising goal.
