Beau's 100km Challenge for RRF


The Robert Rose Foundation (RRF) and their Team 22 initiative have been supporting the spinal cord injured and disability community for over 20 years.  The foundation is named in memory of exceptional sportsman, Robert Rose, who became a quadriplegic after a car accident at the age of 22 in 1974.

Offering physical, equipment and mental health support to the spinal cord injured and disability community, one of the key pillars of activity for the RRF and Team 22 is to encourage participation in sport. 

To this end the RRF is the long term and proud sponsor of the Victorian AFL Wheelchair Carnival and their upcoming round robin carnival which will be live streamed on Facebook -

In support of this showcase of participation, Beau Vernon, inspirational speaker, football coach, quadriplegic and newly minted board member of the RRF, is holding a 100km hand cycle challenge from his home on Phillip Island.  Taking place on Saturday 12th December, the event will lead in to the Grand Final of the wheelchair carnival taking place on Sunday 13th December at MSAC.

Beau’s story is one of courage, determination and overcoming adversity – through the power of positivity and participation.  ( )

All funds raised supporting Beau in his incredible quest will help to continue RRF’s great work to support, facilitate and encourage the spinal cord injured and disability community and show that anything is really possible!
