Climbing for MFB Ormond

Hi. I am the Event Manager of the Melbourne Firefighter Stair Climb, which has seen firefighters come from across Australasia to raise more than $1.3 million for charity in 4 years – benefitting Burns Treatment, Cancer Research, Children’s Health and now Mental Health.This year we are aiming to raise $700,000 for Lifeline and the Black Dog Institute to improve support services, fund research, remove stigmas and raise awareness of mental health issues.These are issues that have torn at the heart of my firefighting “family” – we have lost too many of our brothers and sisters in the emergency services to suicide and an ever increasing number are seriously injured by PTSD. Please help me “Step up to the fight against depression, PTSD and suicide” by sponsoring me below.Thanks to our sponsors, 100% of every dollar you donate will go to mental health.

So far, I've raised $1,846 of my $1,000 fundraising goal.
