Climbing for CFA Bairnsdale

I am once again “Stepping up to the fight against Depression, PTSD and Suicide” by climbing up the 28 floors of Crown Metropol Hotel wearing 25kgs of Turnout Gear and Breathing Apparatus.”

The awesome Bairnsdale team and I are fundraising to improve support services, fund research, remove stigmas and raise awareness of Mental health issues like depression, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and suicide, especially for those within the Emergency Service and Defence communities..

For those of us in Emergency Services this is very close to our hearts, many of us know of someone who has suffered or become victims of Mental Health Disorders.

Please help support us in raising the awareness of these issues and funds to support our Emergency Services personnel.

So far, I've raised $225 of my $1,000 fundraising goal.
