Martin Pearson Memorial Trophy

Audax Theme

A key part of the Queensland AGM is the presentation of the annual awards including the Martin Pearson Memorial Trophy, presented by Sandy Vigar.

This year’s Queensland AGM also had guest speakers from the Queensland Police Force who investigated the circumstances of Martins death and provided a lot of insight for the attendees regarding the investigation and the challenges they faced from the incident through to the conviction of the offender. I would like to thank them for sharing their journey and supporting Sandy through this challenging time.

ABC TV’s Australian Story commences this year at 8 pm on February 17th with part 1 of Martin and Sandy’s story with the second part of the story to air a week later. The preview for Australian Story is now available at

This year’s recipient of the Martin Pearson Memorial Trophy is Jeff Franklin who completed well over 40,000Km last season.
