Climbing for CFA Longwood

Hi Everyone,

I’m sure you know that Lifeline, 000Foundation and Fortem do an amazing job at supporting the community’s mental health – especially during recent COVID times.

I try and support our community when I can by being a wildfire firefighter in the CFA and hope you can join with me to support the community through a donation for our communal mental wellbeing.

This event is officially in memory of the fallen FDNY 9/11 Twin Tower firefighters. I’m personally doing this to honour the memory of the 84 Victorian CFA firefighters who have given their lives to save their communities (

I’m also doing this because I need to get fit for this upcoming summer’s firefighting!

Many thanks,

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 Brian Bilcher in memory of their sacrifice made on that fateful day. Read more about Brian Bilcher.

So far, I've raised $1,100 of my $1,000 fundraising goal.
