I will be awesome

I'm fundraising in memory of my darling nephew Gideon

I'll be participating in my fourth Connor's Run this September to raise money for paediatric brain cancer research in honour of my nephew Gideon, who died in 2019 at the age of 9, almost 12 months after he was diagnosed with an aggressive GBM tumour.

This year, I have a special challenge lined up since I'll be on holidays in New York: I'll be walking 36 kilometres (22 miles) from my old haunt of Brooklyn College to the northern tip of Manhattan.

(The Connor's Run route in Melbourne is about 18km, and multiples of 18 are auspicious numbers in Jewish tradition, which is how I landed on 36. It seems ambitious without committing to marathon-levels of insanity in the September humidity.)

In 2019, Gideon's family and friends formed Team Gideon and competed in Connor's Run with 40 members. With the funds raised over the last three years, we've established the Gideon Gratzer PhD scholarship, supporting a PhD student to research paediatric brain cancer. The funds raised this year will go towards this project. We're committed to supporting the Robert Connor Dawes Foundation by raising awareness and funds through participation in Connor's Run.

Thank you to my Sponsors
