I will be awesome

I'm running 120km in September in memory of my nephew Gideon

In Australia, brain cancer kills more people under 40 than any other cancer – and more children than any other disease. (Statistics are similar in other developed countries.) Survival rates haven't changed in 30 years. It would be so wonderful to finally see a breakthrough.

So this September, I'm running 120km (that's 75 miles!) to help raise money for paediatric brain cancer research in honour of my gorgeous nephew Gideon, who died in 2019 at the age of 9, a year after he was diagnosed with glioblastoma multiforme.

A generous donor has pledged to match all Connors Run donations (up to a total of $50,000), so now's a great time donate.

So far #TeamGideon (G's extended family and many friends) has raised over $150,000 since 2019, resulting in the creation of the Gideon Gratzer PhD Scholarship – $90,000 over 3 years, awarded to one recipient at any children's cancer institute in Australia, to research paediatric brain cancer in the areas of translational, discovery or clinical research. And we hope to fund more researchers in the future, so that we can see some real progress in the treatment of this terrible disease.
