Today was the Daniel Morcombe Foundation’s 19th My Walk for Daniel, which launches Australia’s largest child safety education and awareness day, Day for Daniel.
The 4km walk on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast represents the journey that 13-year-old Daniel Morcombe never completed in 2003.
As some of our team members joined the record number of walk participants, we today announced a $300,000 boost to the Daniel Morcombe Foundation from Golden Casket unclaimed prize money.
It’s our fifth contribution in as many years to the foundation, totalling $1.5 million.
After establishing the Daniel Morcombe Foundation in 2005 in honour of their son, Bruce and Denise Morcombe have worked tirelessly to help keep Aussie kids safe and provide essential education, protection and support.
