Since 2010 the Perry Cross Spinal Research Foundation has tirelessly fundraised for stem cell research to cure spinal injury.

In 2023 alone, the Foundation raised a staggering $7.5 million. This incredible effort in joint venture with Griffith University has resulted in the world’s first nerve bridge and rehabilitation human clinical trial for 15 people living with paralysis and is anticipated to start this year. Perry and his team also work had to provide greatly needed independent living options with Accessible Homes Australia.

The Awards Presentation Ceremony will be held on Tuesday 25 June, best wishes to Perry and all of the nominees in the Gold Coast Australian of the Year Awards.
