Cameron Carr OAM – Paralympian
Gold medal Paralympian Cameron Carr OAM, son of former Queensland Origin forward Norm Carr, is one of Australia’s most accomplished and skilled wheelchair rugby players.
Shortly after signing a contract with the Sydney Roosters at the age of 19, Cameron was involved in a motor vehicle accident that left him with quadriplegia.
After picking up wheelchair rugby as a form of rehabilitation, Cameron went on to hone his skills and compete at an international level, picking up a silver medal at the Beijing 2008 Paralympics and gold at the London 2012 and Rio 2016 Paralympics.
Tim McCallum – Singer and Entertainer
It’s important to have a strong voice as an advocate for people with disabilities, but few have a voice as powerful as Tim McCallum’s.
The internationally-renowned singer can capture a room with his incredible operatic singing, a skill he had to re-learn after a diving accident at age 18 impaired his ability to sing the way he used to.
As well as his show-stopping appearance on reality show The Voice, Tim has also received an Australian Humanitarian Award, a Centenary Medal for his contribution of the Arts and was a finalist for Young Australian of the Year.
Julie Cross – Entertainer and Master of Ceremonies
It’s not just Julie Cross’ choice in frocks that shines and sparkles.
The multi-award-winning motivational speaker and entertainer has been entertaining and inspiring crowds for decades, as she shares her own emotional journey and promotes the importance of resilience and personal development.
The mother of two’s unique style and attitude will guide the 2019 Brisbane Gala Dinner throughout the night as the event’s official MC.

About the cause
Sustaining a spinal cord injury is one of the biggest life changes anyone can go through, and it can happen to anyone at any time.
Our Peer Support team know this first hand – all of them have lived experience with spinal cord damage or related physical disability.
Starting from the Spinal Injuries Unit at the Princess Alexandra Hospital, the Peer Support team provide advice and guidance into life after injury, letting them know what challenges to expect and advice on how to best handle them.
This support continues once the member leaves hospital and re-enters their community and will be there for their entire life journey, whenever and wherever its needed.
The Peer Support team also help connect people with spinal cord damage in regional and metropolitan communities, working together to share their experiences, advocate for greater accessibility in their community and discuss the topics and issues that affect them most.
Your ticket purchase will help ensure that no matter what challenges our members face on their life journey after spinal cord damage, they don’t have to face it alone.
