23 year old Leongatha Football Club Vice Captain was recently injured in a tragic on-field collision. He has suffered a crushed spinal cord and damage to his C5 and C6 vertebrae, which has left him a quadriplegic.
It is expected Beau’s hospital fees, along with carers, equipment and aid for his lifetime will exceed $3.2 million. The family hopes to receive between $150,000 - $200,000 in insurance, leaving them far short of the funds they desperately need. But even this is not guaranteed.
The AFL community has come together in a show of solidarity to help raise much needed funds for Beau and his family. This includes donating to an online auction and helping to support a fundraising dinner.
We encourage you to bid in the online auction on a number of money can’t buy experiences and items or to register your interest in playing in the “Beau Vernon Appeal” Celebrity Golf Day at Yarra Bend Golf Course, Wednesday 19th September.
