The Robert Rose Foundation

The Robert Rose Foundation was created in 1999, soon after the death of Robert Rose, a brilliant AFL player, who sustained quadriplegia as a young man of 22 years. The funds raised by the Foundation go towards providing support to those with spinal cord injuries and their families.
