I'm fundraising for brain matters!

This year I am starting out a little differently. My fantastic wife Sharon is going to match any donation I receive up to a total of $20,000. So, if you really want to make her pay please donate generously. Think of all that money you saved this past year not being able to travel, party or dine out. Put it to good use. 

I’m doing Connor’s Run to support the brave and awesome kids fighting brain cancer - the #1 disease killer of young people, and to fund the science that will one day end paediatric brain cancer. 

Brain cancer research is on the tipping point. We can all be part of making important breakthroughs happen. My participation is something that I can do to support the science and in the meantime the patients. For all the people out there currently battling brain tumours and for those who couldn’t wait for research to progress any longer.

I’m doing this because I know we can find a way to make brain cancer go the way of the dinosaurs. Make a donation to my page and be part of making brains matter, together we can change the odds for young people.

My Updates

Connors Run Final Update

Saturday 2nd Oct
Thank you to all my sponsors for helping us at Connors Run and also me to achieve record  breaking results! In the end I managed to raise $41,640 and obviously a huge part of that was due to the matching by my beautiful wife Sharon. Overall, Connors Run smashed all records and raised over $2M for the fight against pediatric brain cancer - funds that will go to research, clinical trials and programs to help kids who are undergoing treatment. 

As many of you know, I have been on an extended road trip and found myself in Coffin Bay, South Australia on the day designated for Connors Run. With the help of my friend Andy Avery who not only witnessed my 10km walk but did it with me - we got it done in awful conditions. It was raining at times (one of only two days of rain in the last 12 weeks) and the wind was howling - taking the temp from a balmy 10 degrees down to 1.9 degrees with the wind chill added in. Let me say that the seafood chowder for lunch at the end of the walk was very much appreciated. This  was an extended campaign - I kicked off the FUNraising with a photo shoot on World Nude Gardening Day (May 1st) which was a very successful start to the campaign and the last donation came just last night from our friend Shooter in the US. Thanks for putting up with all of the updates. 

But those things are so minor compared to what families go through with brain cancer. I would like to dedicate the walk and this year's fund raising to the memory of Tracy Tripp who sadly lost her battle with brain cancer just a few days before Connors Run. My deepest condolences to her husband Terry and the kids in these difficult days. Hopefully in the future, and together, we can make sure that no family has to suffer as a result of this disease. 

Once again, thank you from the bottom of my heart for your generous support. Start saving your pennies for next year when we do it all again
Regards

July Update

Thursday 15th Jul
I have hit the road on a long planned trip which is supposed to see me round most of Australia but with Covid lockdowns everywhere I am sure the trip is not going to happen as planned. I escaped from NSW a little earlier than planned just to make sure I could get out and am heading north for the warmth. I plan to spend a fair bit of the next few months in the tropics, avoiding the worst of the southern winter. 
Whilst on the road I am making sure that I do plenty of walking in preparation for Connors Run and I continue to do the FUNdraising remotely

Connors Run 'On the Run'

Thursday 17th Jun
i will actually be travelling around Australia in the lead up to Connors Run and won't be in Melbourne for the actual event. Instead I will be somewhere in South Australia - potentially on the Nullarbor or perhaps in Streaky Bay. Wherever I am on that day I will do the 10km walk just the same as the run itself. 
My wife Sharon may be in Melbourne in my place and working in the VIP tent at the finish line. Plan to drop in and see her around there. 
Meanwhile I will be posting photo's of my trip on Insta and FB and potentially dropping a couple of blog posts here with pictures. 
Also, there will be a special event launching the Foundation and Connors Run in Sydney on August 16th - stay tuned. I will try and dial in from the Kimberley's somewhere at that time
