Thank you to everyone who participated or donated to Connor’s Run 2021, our biggest year by far! We’re blown away by your big-hearted generosity.

 Connor's Run is about finding your awesomeness, celebrating courage, and Connor. Thanks to you we raised over $2 MILLION for all the Robert Connor Dawes Foundation's brain matters projects. 

There's still time to donate so head to the Connor's Run website to give your support.


$7.8 million raised for brain matters

We are powered by many big hearts & brains that volunteer time, money & services. As a result, we’re able to put 100% of tax-deductible donations towards our brain matters projects.


Your donation enables researchers to further understand and better treat brain tumours, including earlier detection, surgery and post-surgery treatments.


Supporting young people with our in-home music therapy program. Programs such as these are emotionally invaluable and provide comfort to both the patient and the family.


Your support will fund the next generation of brain cancer practitioners and researchers through awareness programs, PhD scholarships, and establishing strong global conenctions.
