This year’s 5th Annual Brisbane Legends Lunch inspired a community of supporters to invest in a cure for paralysis.
The event, which saw 200 guests come together, set a goal of $100,000 to contribute to the upcoming Human Clinical Trial. Incredibly together we raised over $160,000.
We are incredibly grateful to our event committee, Rob & Kerry Douglas, Ben Michael, Marcus Dore and Kaye Hastie who are instrumental in organising what has become a key event in the Foundation’s calendar. Their ongoing commitment to the Foundation and hard work has made this event an ongoing success and one that guests are excited to return to year after year.
Thank you to our wonderful Event Sponsor Morgans and to Morgans Foundation for generously donating $30,000 to support this event.
To our Cure Crusader Sponsors Hastings Deering and JLL thank you for your continued support!
Thank you to our emcees Tim Horan and Ben Dobbin, who made certain that our guests were entertained throughout the day.
We heard anecdotes, amazing achievements and eye opening stories from sporting legends including; Tim Horan AM, Michael Kasprowicz, Andrew Slack AM, Nathan Sharpe, Ben Ikin, Greg Cornelsen, Daniel Merrett, John Connolly, Nathan Grey, Peter Hill & Troy Fidler.
Cure Crusader Kurt Drysdale also shared his moving story with our guests and we are grateful for his support of the Foundation.
A special thank you also to our wonderful volunteers who supported this special event.
The success of the event relies also on the generosity of our community, we were so lucky to have so many incredible prizes on offer throughout the day.
We would like to thank each and every person who attended and purchased auction items, bought raffle tickets and made a donation by buying a bone – we are so grateful for your support.
We are stronger together – “Everything is Possible!”
