Kyle Conor Spirit of the Ride Award

If you ever crossed the finish line in the early years of the Dwellingup 100, it’s very likely you were cheered on by two exceptional young men with muscular dystrophy – Conor Murphy and Kyle Scolari.

Conor and Kyle were much loved friends and members of MDWA. They were two young men who inspired everyone they met.  

Their tragic passing in 2014 greatly affected the community and was widely felt. A perpetual award in their namesake was created to honour these outstanding young men and it is presented to an inspirational participant who has overcome adversity and risen above challenges whilst showing courage and integrity each year.
