Connor is the 10-year-old Son of Melissa Carse, the Senior Training Officer of RN Employment Services based in Tennant Creek. Connor decided he wanted to grow a mullet in support of others.
At the time of his decision, he saw that the Black Dog Institute was running a “Mullets for Mental Health” Fundraising event. Connor wanted to take part to grow his Mullet for a great cause and raise money and awareness.
Mental Health is an issue that has impacted his family, so he wants to help and support making mental health seen in a better light.
Connor has received great support from family, friends, and the Tennant Creek community.
The local Speedway club also allowed him to have donation tins at the last race meeting in Tennant Creek. Through word of mouth and sharing his post on Facebook he has been successful.
Connor has taken on the challenge, set his goal to raise $1000. At this point of time not only has he met his goal but is still raising more money. This is such a great outcome; Connor is super proud to be a part of such a great cause.
He recently completed an interview with the ABC Radio Drive program in Alice Springs that allowed him to increase awareness and promote the great campaign run by Black Dog.
RN Employment has sponsored Connor to keep his fundraising going – great mullet and we are very proud of you Connor!
Update on Connor’s fundraising. As of the 30th of September Connor has raised $2,080. The Black Dog Institute have agreed to keep Connor’s page up until the 1st of December 2021.
