Are you RED ready to walk for Daniel?
The Ipswich Day for Daniel Committee; consisting of members of Queensland Police Service Ipswich District
Crime Prevention, ICYS Ipswich Community Youth Service and Ipswich City Council, supported Ipswich Rotary
along with Ipswich schools, businesses, and community, will gather to walk for Daniel on Friday 28 October
9.00am.
Day for Daniel is a National Day of Action and the largest child safety awareness for child protection and
prevention, aimed to help empower children.
The national event involves educating children and adults about keeping children safe by being aware of their
surroundings, acting on their instincts and reporting 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.
Join us at Tulmur Place, Nicholas Street, Ipswich CBD at 9am where there will be a sausage sizzle, children’s
activities, face painting and story time with police.
The mounted police will lead the procession at 10am starting from Tulmur Place. At 11.00am the Children’s
Library will have story time on keeping children safe read by police.
Ipswich Police encourage you to walk for Daniel Morcombe and help continue Daniel’s legacy of child safety
across Australia.
The walk is symbolic of the walk that Daniel didn’t make home.
What happened to Daniel should never happen to any child.
Ipswich Police are also asking you to wear red in honour of Daniel and raise awareness of child safety.
Police play a vital role in protecting children and educating the community on child safety. All too often they
are having to investigate various types of child harm and in particular, harms that start online.
By working with the community and providing knowledge of where to seek support and assistance, together
we can educate and protect our children and make a real difference.
We can all play a part in improving the safety of a child by educating them to recognise, react and report.
Wear Red and Walk for Daniel with us on Friday, October 28.
