Connor Scott (Class of 2013) - 50km for 50 days!


Connor Scott (Class of 2013) - 50km for 50 days! Yes you read that correctly, McKinnon alumni student Connor Scott from the Class of 2013, is running 50km every day for 50 days to raise funds and awareness for Speak & Share.

Speak & Share are a Not For Profit Organisation that encourages tough conversations and challenges the stigma associated with mental health. Through their preventative proactive approach, they facilitate school, corporate and sporting club programs, as well as local events to connect the community and raise awareness to positively impact mental health awareness.

Connor’s extraordinary act of endurance and resilience comes on the back of his passion for empowering others, especially youth, to speak up about their mental health.

He is wanting to raise $50,000 for Speak & Share, to provide 2500 kids with the opportunity to learn about how speaking up, and showing vulnerability is in fact an act of courage, and not a weakness.
The McKinnon community are following along and supporting Connor on this journey. A Go Fund Me page has been set up to facilitate any donations to Connor’s cause. This page can be found here:

This Friday (1st December) is Day 48 for Connor, and the run will be happening at Duncan Mackinnon from 4pm. All members of the McKinnon community are invited down to support Connor.
