This year we are proud to be a Supporting Partner of Connor’s Run. Connor’s Run is about finding your awesomeness, celebrating courage and Connor!
Inspired by a big heart and brain, the Robert Connor Dawes (RCD) Foundation was created in 2013 in the memory of 18 year old Robert Connor Dawes (who lost a 16 month fight against ependymoma). We are battling brain cancer and paediatric supporting brain matters in the areas of Research, Care and Development in Australia & the United States. This involves contributing funds to brain tumour Research, supporting young people with at home rehabilitation Care like music therapy, as well as Development initiatives inspiring the next generation of brain cancer practitioners & researchers.
Today, brain cancer is the most fatal of all childhood cancers. Few new effective treatments mean that 80% of children diagnosed with high grade tumours
still lose their battle within 5 years.
This is why brain tumours are so devastating. We’re all about changing the odds. To make brain tumours go the way of the dinosaurs. To support the science
and in the meantime the patients.
We do this because the brain is where the heart lives.
Join us in supporting brain matters.
