The challenge represented by the Melbourne Firefighter Stair Climb is not only a physical and mental challenge over 28 floors.
We also challenge you to help us reach our target to raise $500,000 to fight depression, PTSD and suicide.
The funds you raise will help to fund research and improve patient outcomes for people everywhere.
Your fundraising activity can be as simple or elaborate as you like – so be creative and use your imagination.
Here are some fun ideas:
- Encourage your family, friends and community to donate to you.
- A car battery drive – every shed has got an old flat battery lying around. Collect a tonne and scrap them for ca$h!
- Charge a little more for station meals and drinks, etc with proceeds going to our beneficiaries.
- Chat to your local businesses, schools, sports clubs, Rotary, library or community centres and invite them to sponsor you.
- Organise a night out with your community e.g. a quiz night, a karaoke night or an auction.
- Hold a walkathon, car wash or garage sale.
- Shake a can at your local shopping centre, farmers market or sporting event.
- Post a link from your fundraising page on Facebook or tweet about your efforts.
- Blog on your fundraising page and encourage others to help you reach your goal!
- Contact your local newspaper or radio station to let them know about the great things you’re doing.
