ROYCE SIMMONS FOUNDATION
The 2022 walk was a huge success so we’re back up and running again for Royce’s Big Walk for 2023
So, among other fund-raising initiatives for Royce’s designated not-for-profit support organisation, Dementia Australia, Royce will walk – from 18th April to 29th April 2023 – 313km from Dubbo to Bathurst.
Along the way there will be several sportsman’s dinners or lunches, and a coaching clinic, to help raise funds for local rugby league on the route.
You can support Royce’s mission, Dementia Australia, junior rugby league and, in particular, the families who have or will go through what Royce himself is confronting, by donating or attending some of the functions from April 18-29.
The tough-as-nails former Panthers skipper is tackling his Alzheimer’s diagnosis just as he would any other opponent on the footy field – head on and with the benefit of his ‘team’ and their supporters as his major priority.
