The 2019 climb takes place on the 9th of November 2019.


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.

All donations go to Macquarie University which houses Australia’s largest MND research facility. Currently Macquarie University employs 70 researchers and 12 clinicians involved in the research effort to end MND.

On Saturday, 9 November 2019, hundreds of firies will climb the 1,504 steps of Sydney Tower Eye to
raise money and awareness for MND research. Wearing over 20kg of firefighting gear, it’s a grueling
challenge but not half as grueling as MND.

100% of the funds raised from this event has gone to the Macquarie University Centre for Motor
Neurone Disease Research – the largest MND research centre in Australia. Since inception, Firies
Climb for MND has raised over $2 million. This year, we’d like to raise $1 million more.
