Climbing for CFA Wesburn-Millgrove

On Saturday 2nd of September 2023,
I will be participating with Firefighters and Emergency services personnel from across Australia and the globe when we descend upon the 10th Annual Melbourne Firefighter Stair Climb to ascend the gruelling 28 Floors of the Crown Metropol raising vital funds for Cancer Research and Crisis Support!

As climbers we will battle 28 floors in up to 25kg of turnout gear and breathing apparatus as a symbol of the burden of significant health and well-being issues faced by our first responders and their families on a daily basis, I will be breathing ”on air” through a self contained breathing apparatus adding an extra level of difficulty to the climb.

We need your help to raise $700,000 to support our beneficiaries, Lifeline, Peter MacCallum Cancer Foundation and 000Foundation

But our climbers won’t be alone, they will be supported by our fantastic climb crew volunteers and medical support teams along the way, who will be cheering them on as they embark upon one or the toughest stair climb challenges on offer!

So if this is something you wish to partake in or support, click on the links to find out more and join us in ”Climbing for Cancer Research and Crisis Support”
Thankyou! 🙂

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 Carl E Molinaro in memory of their sacrifice made on that fateful day. Search and read more about Carl E Molinaro.

So far, I've raised $2,010 of my $1,500 fundraising goal.
