City and Country Raising Buck$ at the EKKA

In August we had the pleasure of being the beneficiary of the City and Country Raising Bucks for Spinal Cord Injuries event hosted by Marcus, Shelley and Georgia Curr at the Ekka Showgrounds in Brisbane. Over 600 generous guests came together to raise $697,990 in pursuit of a cure for paralysis and enjoyed some sensational bull riding!

This incredible event brought people from across Queensland together. It was MC’d by Ben Dobbin and guests enjoyed incredible speakers including the formidable and talented Wayne Bennett; former Wallabies coach, John “Knuckles” Connolly; renowned expert in performance under stress, Dr Jemma King; and Matthew Cardinaels CSM, who served as a commando for 18 years. 

The crowd was entertained by none other than James Blundell down in the main arena during the bull ride.

To add to this Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk MP announced a $2 million grant from Queensland Health to the Perry Cross Spinal Research Foundation in support of our ground-breaking Cell Transplantation and Rehabilitation Human Clinical Trial being led by Professor James St John at the Clem Jones Centre for Neurobiology and Stem Cell Research at Griffith University.

Because of the support of our amazing community, we are now closer than ever to commencing this world-first human clinical trial.

As part of this event, Georgia Curr shared her courageous story below.
