MEMBERS – Walk to the Valley 2019

Nov 14, 2019 | News, Parliament

Mr BARTON: I would also like to mention another community event that reminds us just how fragile life is. In 2016 a 19-year-old young fella, Pat Cronin, was out with friends at a local pub and was punched from behind—what is known as a coward punch. That single punch ended his life. His family created the Pat Cronin Foundation to raise awareness of how dangerous a single punch can be. The foundation raises funds for education and research to end the coward punch. On Sunday, 17 November, they will walk with friends and members of the communities of the north-eastern suburbs who knew and loved this young man in the 4th annual Be Wise Walk to the Valley. They are expecting over 3000 walkers this year and hope to raise $200 000 for education and research. Let us end the coward punch.
