One Million Steps For Mental Health
The CFA are hosting this year's stair climb event differently.
The theme One Million Steps For Mental Health encourages not only firefighters but residents of the community to take 3046 steps by October 10.
That number of steps represents the number of Australians that lose their lives to suicide each year.
Local Portland firefighter, Natalie Brindle and her companion, Ember, a Therapy Dog encourages all local to partake in the challenge with her.
To donate to Ember's climb, go to Ember's Facebook Page, Ember the Crisis Response Dog.
