Climbing for TFS Elizabeth Town

Hi. On September 2nd, I’ll be climbing 28 floors in 25kg of kit and helping to raise $700,000 supporting our beneficiaries, Lifeline, Peter MacCallum Cancer Foundation and 000Foundation.

Please help me “Step up to fight cancer, depression, and suicide” by sponsoring me below.

Thanks to our sponsors, 100% of every dollar donated will go to cancer research and crisis support.

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 Louis Arena in memory of their sacrifice made on that fateful day. Search and read more about Louis Arena.

So far, I've raised $1,718 of my $1,000 fundraising goal.
