Shaw and Partners raises $10,300 for the Robert Connor Dawes Foundation Foundation16 Sep 2019

On Sunday 15th of September, a team of 10 Melbourne based Shaw and Partners runners took part in Connor’s Run, Australia’s largest fundraising event for paediatric brain cancer.


In its seventh year, Connor’s Run spans a distance of 18.8km from Hampton Beach to Alexandra Gardens; a memorial run honouring 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 distance is 9.6km, from Catani Gardens St Kilda to Alexandra Gardens, representing Connor’s birthday, 9 June.


The Shaw and Partners team, led by David Erskine, Head of Institutional Sales raised $5,300 with the Shaw and Partners Foundation contributing a generous $5,000 for a total raising of $10,300. 


The money raised will help the Robert Connor Dawes Foundation continue funding crucial projects in the areas of research, care and development to fund the science to end brain cancer and support patients.


The Foundation was created in 2013 by Liz Dawes and Scott Dawes in memory of their son Robert Connor Dawes who died from a brain tumour at 18 years of age.
