Connor's Run central park
A new event this year is Holly's Central Park run at 10am on Saturday 9th September. Holly has arranged for a 5.1 mile run, starting at Columbus Circle. Here's Holly's story...
Robert Connor Dawes was always such a big support for me, he came to all my shows and would scream my name at curtain call. When he was diagnosed he was still able to make the second act of Barnum, he watched my song and was yelling "GOO HOLLY" the whole time from the wheel chair seat. The next day he continued to sing the lyrics of "Black and White." At that moment I decided Musical Theatre was the career for me, to bring happiness to people that have so much more going on in their lives for a couple of minuets of a whole 2 hour show, then this is what I want to do with my life. I have moved to NYC to pursue this dream, and any time classes get tough or I am questioned about my abilities and talent, I think of how happy Connor always was watching me perform. And hope one day I can make other people that happy. Please sign up for the NYC Shadow Run in support of the RCD Foundation, and the beautiful boy that has inspired me all my life. Love you Connor ❤❤
