Only your kindness can save Junior Wheelchair Rugby for Beau and his team of future champions.
Last Christmas, Beau’s dreams came true when Australia’s first ever Junior Wheelchair Rugby program was launched. He was over the moon!
He and his teammates had an awesome season playing the game they love, and learning through the awesome power of sport that they can participate, compete and triumph… on and off the court.
But now the 2024 season is in jeopardy. Without your help, it may not go ahead at all, and Beau’s dreams will be over.

Buy more wheelchairs for new players
Pay for weekly training and match fees
Kit players out with new team jerseys and equipment
Fund support workers – one per player
"Wheelchair Rugby has lifted his spirits like nothing else has in his 10 years", says Beau's mum, Rose.
"The minute he got into that chair, there was no turning back. He says it’s like the chair becomes part of his body, and he doesn’t feel held back at all… he feels invincible! If this season doesn’t go ahead, it would be absolutely devastating for him and for all the other kids who get so much out of playing."
You have the opportunity to not only change kids' lives and the way they experience inclusion and sport, you have an opportunity to shape and change their future!
