Support the 2017 Fire Fighter’s Climb for Motor Neurone Disease

The Fire Fighters Climb for Motor Neurone Disease (MND) started in February 2015 when firefighter Matthew Pridham approached Macquarie with an idea to create a fundraising event to raise $50,000 for MND research.

The result is an annual event that sees more than 500 firefighters take to the Sydney Tower Eye’s 1,504 steps (that’s 98 storeys!), to raise awareness about MND and funds for ongoing research. This year, one of our staff (and event co-founder) Megan Pope will have the special privilege of representing Macquarie and taking on the challenge on 14 October.

While Megan has been busy prepping with plenty of stair machine workouts, she will need your help to reach her fundraising goal of $1,504 (one dollar for every step of the tower). To find out more about the event and to support Megan’s efforts, donate here.
