Climbing for CFA Mount Evelyn

Well it’s back on again and I’m up for the challenge. You can help by supporting me and many others who are also climbing for the cause by placing a donation towards our goal. Given that Covid has effected all of us one way or the other and just add extra stress to those already suffering Mental Health any amount goes a long way to achieving our fundraising amount. Those that suffer sometimes do it silently. Your donation is your voice.

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 William E McGinn in memory of their sacrifice made on that fateful day. Read more about William E McGinn.

So far, I've raised $275 of my $300 fundraising goal.
