Climbing stairs for charity... in full firefighter gear

Although the activities of Genesis Horticultural Solutions keep Australian consultant Tony Bundock pretty busy, he still considers it important to put something back into the local community.

“I am now approaching my 30th year as a Country Fire Authority volunteer firefighter, which sees me respond to emergency calls whenever I am in the local area", said Tony.

On Saturday 7th September 2019, Tony will be participating again in the Melbourne Firefighter Stairclimb. He will be one of 600 firefighters who will “step up to fight depression, PTSI and suicide” by climbing the 28 floors of Crown Metropol Hotel wearing 25kgs of turnout gear and breathing apparatus.

This year, the firefighters are aiming to raise $700,000 for the Emergency Services Foundation, Lifeline and the Black Dog Institute to improve support services, fund research, remove stigmas and raise awareness of Mental health issues like depression, Post Traumatic Stress Injury and suicide, especially for those within the Emergency Service and Defence communities.
