Carr & Co are again competing in the Port to Pub Rottnest crossing swim on 25 March 2017. The event comprises of a team of four starting at Leighton Beach and finishing out the front of the Rottnest Hotel after approximately 20kms of swimming.
The four people competing in the event are:
- Mike McConnell of Air Services Australia;
- Ben King of Carr & Co;
- Justin Palmer of Grill’d; and
- Ross Robertson of RCR Resources.
As part of the event, the firm is encouraging donations as Mike McConnell’s wife has recently been diagnosed with stage 4 bowel cancer.
An article was published on the Daily Mail late last year about Kim McConnell, who was diagnosed with stage 4 bowel cancer two hours before giving birth to her second child. A link to the article is as follows:
Mike and Kim are currently raising funds in the hope to flying Kim to the United States following chemotherapy treatment to search for a cure. A link to the Gofundme page of Kim McConnell is as follows:
Carr & Co encourages anyone reading this article to make a donation to the McConnells and share this article on Social Media to support a very worthy cause.
