A crew of 11 (eleven) firefighters from 257 Coffs Harbour Fire Station are to tackle the Sydney Tower Climb for Motor Neurone Disease.
We are a crew of firefighters with very diverse backgrounds who come together as a team to serve and protect our community.
This year as a team we will join our fellow firefighting comrades to tackle the 98 storeys, or 1504 stairs of Sydney Tower Eye wearing full structural Firefighting ensemble and air sets with a combined weight of over 20Kg.
At a vertical rise of 820 feet, the climb to the observation deck is a gruelling challenge. Each floor of the stairwell is dedicated patients of MND both past and present. It’s a harrowing journey supporting those living with the horrific disease.
Motor Neurone Disease (MND) is a progressive, terminal neurological disease. There is no known treatment or cure. Each day, in Australia, two or more people die from MND and more than two people are diagnosed with MND.
WHERE DOES THE MONEY GO?
All donations go to Macquarie University which houses Australia’s largest MND research facility. Currently Macquarie University employs 40 researchers and 12 clinicians involved in the research effort to end MND.
