Kaelli Voigt knows what it’s like to push the boundaries – and herself.
And she’ll be pushing herself that little bit further to prove she can achieve anything she puts her mind to, when she takes on the Eureka Climb.
The 21-year-old Melton West woman will be among hundreds taking part in what is Australia’s biggest vertical race – 88 levels, 1642 stairs, and 300 metres of vertical elevation at Melbourne’s Eureka Tower.
Money raised through the Eureka Climb will be donated to Whitelion, a not for profit group that works with youth in the justice system, and Interplast which provides life-changing surgery to people in the Asia Pacific region.
“I wanted to be a bit more adventurous,” Ms Voigt said. “I wanted to test my stamina and know that I can push myself to achieve the things that might seem difficult.”
While the money raised from the climb is going to charity, Ms Voigt says she’s also doing it for herself and her mother, who’s battled mental health issues for more than two decades.
“I want to show people not to be afraid of taking that step and being a better person for themselves.”
The Eureka Climb is on Sunday, November 13. Details: eurekaclimb.com.au.
