Climbing for TFS Elizabeth Town

Hi, after participating in this event last year, having a great time while raising money for wonderful charity I am returning. This time with friends, my wife Fiona and a whole bunch of training/fundraising partners from Deloraine and Elizabeth Town fire brigades.
Last year over $500K was raised for Beyond Blue and Lifeline, this
paid for professionals to be put on over weekends to help volunteers on mental health crisis help lines. This is also there peak time. We, my fundraising helpers and sponsors raised nearly $7,000 which was the 4th highest individual total. This year the challenge is to raise over $700K for the same cause. The bar is raised!
If you can spare a dollar to help “Step up to fight depression, PTSD and suicide” please donate.
Meanwhile I will keep training to run up 28 floors in 25kg of kit and beat last years time of 5 mins and 2 sec.

So far, I've raised $517 of my $3,000 fundraising goal.
