Make this year count, wear red and walk for Daniel on Friday October 27 | #childsafety | #kids | #chldern | #parents | #schoolsafey

Day for Daniel is a National Day of Action that helps empower children through education on child safety awareness, child protection and prevention.

The national event involves educating everyone about keeping children safe.

Children are taught to be aware of their surroundings, act on their instincts and report if they feel something isn’t right; recognise, react, and report.

The Daniel Morcombe Foundation aims to empower children with personal safety knowledge, as well as assisting victims of crime and support families of missing persons, particularly those involving children.

This year, Ipswich businesses, schools and communities are invited to participate in Ipswich Day for Daniel Community Walk.

This Walk, organised by the Ipswich Day for Daniel Committee (consisting of members of Ipswich Crime Prevention, ICYS Ipswich Community Youth Service, Ipswich City Council, supported by Ipswich City Rotary) and with important support from Ipswich schools, businesses and the community is now in its 12th year.

Join us at Tulmur Place, Nicholas Street, Ipswich CBD at 9am where there will be a sausage sizzle, children’s activities, and face painting.

The procession will leave Tulmur Place, at 10.00am and an address from Bruce and Denise Morcombe will welcome us back!

Children and their parents can attend the Children’s Library for story time, with Senior Constable Sheedy focusing on the Three Rs: recognise, react, and report.

Ipswich Police encourage you to walk for Daniel Morcombe and help continue Daniel’s legacy of child safety across Australia.

The Walk symbolises the walk that Daniel didn’t get to make to get home.

Ipswich Police are also asking you to wear red in honour of Daniel and raise awareness of child safety.

We can all play a part by educating our children to recognise, react and report.

For more information on Day for Daniel, visit the website or contact Ipswich District Crime Prevention on 3817 1351.

Please join us for Story Time at the Children’s Library at 11am after the walk. Please note this is a free ticketed event with limited places.
