Climbing for CFA Eltham

Hi. On September 2nd, I’ll be climbing 28 floors in 25kg of kit and helping to raise $700,000 supporting our beneficiaries, Lifeline, Peter MacCallum Cancer Foundation and 000Foundation.

Please help me “Step up to fight cancer, depression, and suicide” by sponsoring me below.

Thanks to our sponsors, 100% of every dollar donated will go to cancer research and crisis support.

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 Thomas P Holohan in memory of their sacrifice made on that fateful day. Search and read more about Thomas P Holohan.

So far, I've raised $542 of my $1,000 fundraising goal.

You must be tougher than a kangaroo's hide to even attempt it, but we know you're as tough as they come. Now, remember, when you're climbin' those stairs, it's essential to take it one step at a time – just like you tackle bushfires down under. If you get tired, just picture a koala snacking on eucalyptus leaves at the top, and you'll be right as rain. And don't worry about the sweat pourin' off you like a waterfall in the Outback. It's all for a good cause, mate! Plus, it's a surefire way to shed a few pounds, but I reckon you'll gain even more respect from us all. So, go out there and give it a fair dinkum go! We'll be cheering for you as loud as a pack of dingoes howlin' at the moon. And when it's all over, we'll raise a cold one to you at the local pub, and you can regale us with tales of the epic climb. Just don't forget to hose yourself down first – no one wants to smell a firefighter after a grueling stair climb! You've got the Aussie spirit in ya, and we couldn't be prouder. On behalf of all your mates, we're behind you all the way, cobber! Climb those stairs, and remember, you're a legend in the making. Good on ya!
