The first fundraising event was held in 2001 when a small team representing the Conor Kerin Memorial Fund entered the Great North Run. Thanks to the extreme generosity of family and friends this raised £2,900 to get the fund off the ground.Conor's Godfather, Brother & Dad after the 2001 Great North Run
The main fundraiser for the next 9 years was the annual Conor Kerin Memorial Cup. This was a 5-a-side tournament held in Marlborough each year on the Sunday before Conor's birthday.
The inaugural cup competition was held in 2003 and the last in 2010 raised over £3600 through entrance fees, sponsorship and related fund raising activities.
The main fundraising event now is Conor's Hike. The first hike was held in 2010, when Conor's aunts walked the 84 miles of the Ridgeway, raising around £1,300. For more information on this year's challenge go to Conor's Hike
Other one-off events are held from time to time and Conor's Fund also receives occasional donations from family and friends to mark special occassions and the like, including some regular donations from individuals via 'Give As You Earn' schemes, for which we are extremely grateful.
