Ryan Lewis

Climbing for CFA Emerald

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.
