The Ipswich community will come together on October 25 to take part in a Walk for Daniel.

The walk is being hosted by the Queensland Police Service Ipswich crime prevention team with the support of Ipswich Day for Daniel Committee, ICYS Ipswich Community Youth Service and Ipswich City Council.

Day for Daniel is a national day of action and is the largest awareness day for child safety.

The national day 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 is not right.

The foundation aims to empower children with personal safety knowledge, as well as assisting victims of crime and supporting the families of missing persons, particularly those involving children.

The walk symbolises Ipswich’s support for the Daniel Morcombe Foundation, and by wearing red participants continue to honour Daniel and increase awareness of child safety within Australia.

Come and join members of the community to raise funds for the Daniel Morcombe Foundation.

The Walk for Daniel will start at 9am on Friday, October 25 at the d’Arcy Doyle Place grassed area on Brisbane Street, Ipswich.

Participants are encouraged to wear something red to show support. There is no need to register, just turn up on the day.

Prior to the walk, there will be a sausage sizzle supported by Ipswich North Rotary, face-painting and much more.
