    Graham Jones
    2 months ago ● Hang on... this event is only for 5mins work? Surely you should be doing some kind of Iron Man event straight after? I mean, how hard can it be? Good Luck!

    Graham Jones. It’s long overdue I share how an invisible lightning bolt of luck nailed me in 2017 when I met the one-of-a-kind Graham Jones in a Barcelona hotel rooftop pool. Thanks to Pauline stealing the book I had just started (The Crossroad by Mark Donaldson), Graham approached; initially assuming we were ADF. What followed was an incredible act of generosity from someone who was then effectively a stranger but has since continued in immense fashion for three years and seen Graham donate a tremendous amount of funds. I feel like I have somehow beaten the system by meeting and maintaining a (very one-way) relationship with this amazing man. Being privy to elements of Graham’s own life completely reinforces how fortunate I am to know such a selfless man, how giving he truly is, and that perhaps we were always meant to meet. Graham, I wish you every good wish I can power up and charge you with for what lies ahead in your own journey and thank you from the bottom of my heart for being a shining light from afar. Your involvement in my fundraising is epic and the stuff of legend. For goodness’ sake mate, WHEN ARE YOU COMING TO AUSTRALIA??!!?? https://www.firefighterclimb.org.au/climber/mikwilson/ Here’s a song for you; The Music-Take The Long Road And Walk It: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ospxlZZM2Hw

    MTP- Rail Infrastructure Alliance
    2 months ago ● On behalf of the RIA Rail Safety Team, we would like to thank all project staff and sub-contractors who donated (food,time and $$$) during the Rail Safety Week fundraising event. The Alliance would like to wish Mik Wilson all the best in his endeavor in raising peoples awareness of important issues such as depression, PTSI and suicide.

    Metro Tunnel Rail Infrastructure Alliance eastern and western portals thanks to all at MTP RIA for such a monumental donation-the largest single donation I have ever received in 6 years of stairclimbing! Thanks to Luke Finnigan, I was made aware that your workforce deals very frequently with the same issues my stairclimb fundraising is trying to help with. But the over-riding positive is that so many of your work-family want to reach out and contribute so much to someone who can help. That is the most important first step. So, once the stairclimb is done, I promise I will not disappear. I will work with you so that you can establish something that works for everyone at the Rail Infrastructure Alliance. A problem shared is a problem halved. 🚒🚂💪 Here’s a song for you; Guy Sebastian-Choir.

    Gareth White
    2 months ago ● Keep up the great work mate. Your a legend and one of a kind. Your an inspiration to any that has had the pleasure of getting to know you. Well done brother.

    Gareth Gregory White (MFB). When it came time back in 2017 to make a big decision about staying in town or getting a permanent northern district spot, there were only two people I consulted for their opinions-Pauline and Gareth. Gareth said stay at FS02. So I did. And then MFB sent me out north anyway! That’s the way we do in the fire brigade. 🤣🚒🍍 Gareth is a great mentor, hilarious bloke, compassionate, but always poised and ready to keep the bastards honest. Thanks for your support in all things and a very large boost to the stairclimb fundraising. It will be put to great use by the people at Black Dog and Lifeline. And you’re too kind with your message. Cheers, brother! Here’s a song for you; 28 Days-Deadly Like.

    Space Force Rear Admiral Alan Jackson
    2 months ago ● Ah Michael, that time of year is upon us, when you climb up stairs to help people in need. It’s my favorite time of the year, because in order to drum up the cash for my donation, I put on a talent show in the officers mess. This year, I went with a naval theme... dusted off my fishnets and black curly wig, straddled a rather girthsome cruise missile and belted out Cher’s “If I Could Turn Back Time” to a room full of strung out Space Troopers at the back end of a 36 month deployment orbiting the outer ring of Uranus. Suffice to say my lusty baritone and willowy pins had the lads all a’lather, and so a record amount of small change was collected in my hat. Good times! Best of luck with your climbing, and if you’ve got a spare drawing of the ‘96 WNWA Warrnambool Tournament team floating about, that would be ample recompense. It would indeed keep me toasty and warm on those long, cold nights out in the void. Carry on, you really are the greatest of man kind!

    Space Force Rear Admiral Allan Jackson my gratitude for your otherworldly contributions. It is good to see another rank change and hear of your exploits. Might I suggest the rings of Saturn for your next sojourn? In the meantime, a hearty ‘hazar!’ for your planet-sized donation and may your luck be like the orbit of the moon around the earth; always growing by 3.8cm per year. Here is a tune to warrant wearing your best cosmic ray-protective codpiece around the shuttle. Ace Frehley-Outer Space.

    Scott Wilson (QFES) To have the support of the top individual fundraiser of the Melbourne Firefighter Stairclimb in 2017 and 2018 is awesome. With your absence at this year's stairclimb, the symbolism of yours and Elise’s support is not lost to Pauline and I. But guess what? Your donation now makes you a part of my drive. So, that being said, I am going to do my best to bring you a third straight fundraising win. And fundraising IS what this is all about. -Mik 😉🚒💪🍻 Here is a special song dedication for you both; Imagine Dragons-Whatever It Takes.

    Luke Finnigan. Astonishing work by Fig. Here is a man I first really got to know as his basketball coach. Towards the later stages of coaching him, I invited Fig into my own basketball team as a teammate-such was his ability and drive to improve. But above all else, Fig is a hilarious, random, and totally loyal and selfless man who has now gone above and beyond to participate in this event. He has MORE THAN DOUBLED his donation from 2018 and also offered to post flyers at his place of work. Reminds me of a final I was coaching when I asked Fig to take the ball and drive to the basket at the end of the game. And he did versus the entire opposition Eltham Wildcats team. The other instructions I gave him were a bit sneaky only due to the treatment we were receiving as the visiting team and will remain between Fig and I but suffice to say, he did it and it and the gamble we took worked out against the odds. And he’s come through yet again. Cheers, bro. See you very soon. 🍻💪🚒🏀 Enjoy the tune. Alice In Chains-Voices.
