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.
Your Connor's Run

You can do this. Even if it’s your first time fundraising for anything, we know you can do it. We know this because you’ve done the hardest thing already, and that’s signing up for Connor’s Run. From here, all you need to do is enjoy the lead up to the event, train (if you want to) and share why you decided to take part with friends, colleagues and family. They’ll get behind you, because they’ll be proud of your work to change the odds for those facing the #1 cancer killer in young people.
Write on your page why you’re taking part in Connor’s Run. Making your story personable will help your friends, colleagues and family understand why they should get behind you.
If you don’t feel comfortable asking for a donation, that's ok. Instead you can try one of the fun(d)raising ideas below that you can invite your friends to join you in doing. You can also just share your training or your excitement for taking part in the lead up to the event.
The thing with brain matters is, every bit of funding makes an impact. So you don’t need to set a gigantic goal. Decide on something you feel is fun and motivating to reach. Maybe you'd love a champ bandana ($500) or a green tee ($1000). When you’ve reached that, you can decide whether you want to increase it further.
"I did it, you can too" is a powerful motivator for others to throw their support behind you.
What would be more fun than getting your bestie to run with you. Or see your boss wrecked after a long run. Or spending your Sunday with the family, ﬁlled with that warm-fuzzy feeling you only get from doing something good. It’s more fun together, so start or join a team.

The guys challenged their friends to donate to see them in matching speedos & fake tan. 5 years running they've raised funds... and eyebrows.
The News Team strapped portable speakers to their bodies and friends could add songs to the playlist in exchange for a donation.
Dave Harris' global event is 64 holes of golf. Friends donated a buck or two per hole. For the past five years Dave's been one of our top fundraisers.
We have some great perks that make the warm-fuzzy-feeling of supporting brain matters oh-so much better. Need help to get started? We’ve got that too.
Connor’s Run is the brainchild of the Robert Connor Dawes Foundation. It supports the foundation’s brain matters projects with the goal of changing the odds for young people facing brain cancer, the #1 cancer killer of young Australians.
