Here's your chance to pit yourself against 600 Firefighters in a climb up 28 floors wearing 25kgs of Turnout Gear and Breathing Apparatus. This year, the Firefighter's Charity Fund with your help will be climbing to raise $700,000 to aid in the fight against depression, PTSI and suicide. Compete, donate, or sponsor a Firefighter to help the Emergency Services Foundation support mental health initiatives.
Like many others, I’ve been impacted by mental health challenges at different stages in my life. I’ve been lucky that I’ve been able to climb out of some dark places and help others who were also stuck down there.
This year, I’m climbing the Metropol stairs for those who aren’t able to, those who cant get out of bed or cant bear the thought of facing the world.
Help me and my team raise much needed funding for services these people desperately need and make sure that you check in on the people who have gone quiet, or that you havent heard from in a while.
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 Lawrence T Stack in memory of their sacrifice made on that fateful day. Read more about Lawrence T Stack.
So far, I've raised $1,750 of my $1,000 fundraising goal.
