Mik Wilson

Climbing for MFB West Melbourne

Every year, this remarkable event allows firefighters to ‘take steps’ for a great cause. Each year I have smashed my previous year’s fundraising total. Help me do something remarkable by smashing it again. -Mik.

So far, I've raised $7,310 of my $5,243 fundraising goal.

    10 months ago ● Never stop Mik!!!

    Not only is Andrew Bennetts possibly the toughest and possibly most athletically gifted opponent I have ever faced on the blacktop, he is also a gentleman, an experienced management consultant, an actor, and now an author. http://www.booktopia.com.au/the-mess-we-re-in-andrew-bennetts/prod9780994465207.html Add to all this, he is now the latest contributor to my 2017 firefighter stairclimb fundraising appeal. Thanks Bart-and to me, you will always be that bloke who tried to break a massive ice block with his forehead.

    My beautiful, beautiful Pauline thank you for donating to my 2017 Firefighter Stairclimb appeal. You already do so much as a sometime training partner, 'hydration coach', and campaign manager and I am blessed to have you propel me up those stairs every year. You rock, Tsena!

    Andrew Broadbent
    11 months ago ● Champion

    Fist-bumps to Andrew Broadbent for throwing a very welcome assist back my way for a change! I have played basketball with this man for almost my entire bball life including to this very day (last night's victory as a matter of fact). We have enjoyed much success and many premierships. Broady and I share a unique way of communicating on the court that comes from countless withering practice sessions and pressure-cooker on-court situations and I love playing ball with this bloke. Sometimes we leave all other 8 players shaking their heads once we've competed a play. It's a largely non-verbal, kind of random, but hugely successful kind of thing. Much like these donations. And I'm sure Broady brings that to everything he does. As a matter of fact, check it out for yourself and catch Broady at this little stage play thing you may have heard of lately..... http://bookofmormonmusical.com.au/

    Jamin Silluzio
    11 months ago ● You are a legend, Mik for supporting this important cause. It is incredibly impressive that you are achieving faster times with age. All the best with this year's climb. The team at Barry Plant Eltham, Ivanhoe, Rosanna, Doreen & Greensborough.

    Well, what can I say? Jamin Silluzio of Barry Plant Eltham (and on behalf of Barry Plant Ivanhoe, Rosanna, Greensborough, and Doreen) has yet again flooded an incredible donation towards my 2017 Firefighter Stairclimb appeal for combatting PTSD, Suicide Prevention, and Depression. Jamin and Barry Plant Real Estate have been a constant supporter of my charity work via the Stairclimb from day dot. He is a funny bugger, a talented athlete, a long-time friend and 'co-conspirator', and obviously a very generous business man. I cannot be more grateful. I also wish to thank Keiran Whaley who no doubt had input into this customarily explosive escalation to my appeal total. I challenge all my small business contacts out there to match Barry Plant Eltham (et al)'s contribution. In fact, I challenge you to BEAT it. To follow donations and my progress, go to https://www.firefighterclimb.org.au/climber/mikwilson And finally, on a more personal note, if you are looking for first-hand advice on renting/buying/investing in property, please contact me-I can personally put you on to some great contacts within the Barry Plant franchise. I have been a willing spruiker of their brand even before I approached Barry Plant for fundraising support and I can attest proudly that they have looked after me very well since May 2002 and I would not hesitate in recommending them to anyone in need of a trustworthy Real Estate franchise. Pretty stoked right now. http://www.barryplant.com.au/eltham/
