Just because you can’t join Connor’s Run or a global event doesn’t mean you can’t be with us in spirit.
You can set-up a fundraising page and come up with your own fun challenge. A run around the local park. A bake-off at the office. A fundraising dinner at your place. Whatever you decide to do, your fundraising page can be your tool to support your fundraising.

Connor involved himself in water polo, rowing, basketball, rugby, maths, Latin and anything he could get his hands on. He was diagnosed with a brain tumour at the end of 2011 and for 16 months, his friends and family rode a pretty turbulent roller coaster as he went through treatments and surgeries but ultimately succumbed to the aggressive tumour in April 2013.
Connor was a loveable, driven and sometimes crazy human, and I'm sure that's why his name has been carried on with such strength. Connor's Run actually follows one of Connor's crazy activities. The full run in Melbourne is actually a tribute to a time that Connor decided he needed to do a bit of extra exercise so he ran from his house into the rowing sheds (approximately 19kms) BEFORE a rowing session.
Funds raised go toward the Robert Connor Dawes Foundation’s Brain Matters projects. Our main focus is the world-leading AIM BRAIN PROJECT, an Australian first in personalised diagnosis that improves treatment for young people battling brain cancer.
