Climbing for FRV Ormond

Hi. I’m stepping up in the Melbourne Firefighter Stair Climb, which has seen firefighters come from across Australasia to raise more than $3 million for charity in the last 9 years – benefitting Burns Treatment, Cancer Research, Children’s Health and now Mental Health.
This year, we are aiming to raise $600,000 for Lifeline, Fortem Australia and the 000 Foundation.
These much needed funds will 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 PTSI.
Please help me “Step up to the fight against depression, PTSI 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 $0 of my $1,000 fundraising goal.
