TO ALL UFU MEMBERS

Show Your Support for

the Inaugural Melbourne

Firefighter Stair Climb

this Saturday.

The Firefighters Charity Fund has partnered with the MFB Charity Running Club to put together the Inaugural Melbourne Firefighter Stair Climb in support of the Alfred Burns Unit.

The event will consist of 200 firefighters from across Australasia climbing the 476 stairs and 28 floors of the Crown Metropol in full kit and Breathing Apparatus.

The UFU is proud to support this event and encourages members to get involved by Competing, donating to the cause or sponsoring a colleague.

 It’s not too late to enter in either of the two categories:

  • You can challenge yourself by wearing BA “on air” by entering  the “Donned and Started” Category.

  • Or have a bit of fun in the “Donned Only” Category, where you just wear the BA and not the mask!

To donate or register go to www.firefighterclimb.org.au  – registration includes a free event t-shirt!

Event details are as Follows:

Sunday 7th September at  12.30pm  

Crown Metropol Melbourne
8 Whiteman Street, Southbank, 3006

 So far the event has raised $94,333 and every dollar contributed by firefighters in either entry fee or donation will go towards upgrading the Alfred Burns Unit.
