David Harris's Connor's Run USA 

Close Dawes family friend, David Harris will once again do Connor's Run his own way all the way over in the USA. Dave will attempt to play 63 holes of golf in a day while walking. As Connor’s Run is 18.8km - which translates roughly into 3.3 rounds of golf from the white tees at Oak Glen Golf Club in Stillwater. Dave has rounded up to 3.5 rounds, or 63 holes. (Actually, we learned in past years that 63 holes equates closer to 22 miles than 18.8km, but who’s counting!) All donated amounts are tax-deductible, and the proceeds will be used in the USA for research, care and development projects to aid children with brain tumors.

English Channel Swim

In August 2019, Nick Mauger and his four mates are doing one of the toughest swims imaginable, the English Channel. Fewer people have successfully swum the English Channel than have climbed Mount Everest, so it's no mean feat! Get behind Nick and the guys on this adventure of a lifetime.


RORY'S WARRIORS- The great ocean road running festival 

Gemma Berry's 5-year-old son Rory was diagnosed in May 2018 with a large tumor in his upper spinal cord and other tumors throughout his brain and spine. His case (Disseminated Glioneuronal Tumors) is extremely rare and one of only 200 know cases worldwide. It was whilst Rory was still in the hospital that Gemma wanted to complete a significant event to raise funds and awareness for Rory’s condition and the thousands of other children in his position. Gemma will compete in the Great Ocean Road Running Festival (18-19 May 2019). Rory's Warriors have already raised over $17,000, well done Gemma!
