Simon Beaumont, Beau Waters & Renee Baker


Simon Beaumont has been supporting Muscular Dystrophy WA for many years. His passion for helping people with muscular dystrophy and neuromuscular conditions goes back 20 or more years when he worked at Rocky Bay. Now back at 6PR – (Afternoons with Simon Beaumont 12 – 3pm) – Simon uses his voice and connections to spread the muscular dystrophy message.

West Coast Eagles great, Beau Waters joined the Muscular Dystrophy Army in 2015 when he threw his weight behind the TRIUMPH over muscular dystrophy campaign at the SunSmart Ironman 70.3 Busselton. Beau attends many community and fundraising events, lending a hand and leveraging his profile to raise awareness and funds for muscular dystrophy. 

Western Australian Professional Triathlete, Renee Baker jumped at the chance to lend herself to the Ambassador role. First affiliated with our campaign at Busselton, Renee continues to put herself on the line for Muscular Dystrophy WA… even auctioning herself off as golf caddy all in the name of charity!

Renee said “I’m really excited to take on this role with a wonderful charity.  As a nurse for the last 6 years, I have worked with quite a lot of people who have muscular dystrophy.  It made sense to become an Ambassador for a cause that I understand.”

Russell has been wowing guests at Muscular Dystrophy WA’s Annual Truffle Auction since 2014. Not only does he design and cook a truffle inspired dish for the VIP crowd to enjoy, he also offers money can’t buy experiences in the exclusive Champagne Lounge at Must Wine Bar.  Russell is generous to a fault, extending his ambassador role through all facets of our organisation.
