The Robert Connor Dawes (RCD) Foundation will hold its sixth annual Connor's Run along Melbourne's foreshore on Sunday, 16 September 2018 to support paediatric brain cancer and beat the number one cancer killer of young Australians.

With more than 4,000 runners, Connor's Run is Australia’s largest fundraising event for paediatric brain cancer and is aiming to raise $700,000. In the last five years, Connor’s Run has raised $2.2 million for paediatric brain cancer.

Connor’s Run spans 18.8km from Hampton Beach to Alexandra Gardens, to honour the life of 18-year-old Connor Dawes. It’s the same track Connor once ran in preparation for his upcoming rowing season and coincidentally, the length of his life.

The shorter run length is 9.6km, from Catani Gardens St Kilda to Alexandra Gardens, representing Connor’s birthday, 9 June.
