Support our local firies in this weekend's Sydney Tower climb for MND

It’s on!!! This Saturday 9 November 2019, Kai Attree‎ and Sabina Hughes from Fire and Rescue NSW Station 217 Batemans Bay will be climbing the iconic Sydney Tower Eye along with hundreds of other firefighters as quickly as possible in full structural fire fighting ensemble to raise money and awareness for Motor Neurone Disease (MND). They are asking the community to help them raise as much money as possible to help stop this devastating disease.

Teams of firefighters will race to climb all 1504 stairs (98 floors) of the Sydney Tower Eye, each carrying an additional 20kg of gear.


Kai says "It will be a gruelling challenge, however it is nothing in comparison to the challenge patients with MND face every day.


"MND is Motor Neurone Disease, or ALS, or Lou Gehrigs Disease. It doesn’t matter what you call it you don’t want it. Normal healthy fit people exactly like you get MND. It strikes indiscriminately, at anytime with no proven explanation."

"MND is a progressive, terminal neurological disease. MND affects the nerve cells (neurones) controlling the muscles that enable us to move, speak, breathe and swallow, causing them the degenerate and die. A person’s senses and intellect are not affected.

Every dollar raised will directly support vital MND research at the Macquarie University MND Research Centre."

"Every cent helps. Please dig deep" You can support Kai and Sabina at the links below:
