Richard Bennett

Climbing for TFS Elizabeth Town

Hi, Running up stairs in a fire proof heat retardant suit with 25kg of kit on my back is not something I would normally do as volunteer fire-fighter in country Tasmania. I recently was unable to attend Elizabeth Towns regular meeting and so my brigade thought they might nominate me for this event. Whilst initially the idea of me doing this seemed I a bit crazy, I believe the money raised will be well worth me pushing myself out of my comfort zone. The fire fighter challenge is raising money for causes working towards helping people with mental health, depression and PTSD through research and support networks. Given that over 1 million Australians suffer depression alone, this is something that effects all Australians. I know it has affected my own community on many different levels. Therefore I ask you to assist me in raising some money. The more you donate the harder I will train

So far, I've raised $6,930 of my $2,000 fundraising goal.
