Help the Cronin’s spread the #BEWISE message

The Pat Cronin Foundation was formed in 2016, following the senseless death of Pat Cronin (a former Whitefriars student) who was killed by a single Coward Punch.

The Pat Cronin Foundation honours Pat by providing an optimistic voice to Education, Awareness and Research about the Coward Punch. Helping people feel empowered to make change through wise decisions.

The 4th annual Pat Cronin Foundation Be Wise Walk to the Valley is being held on Sunday the 17th of November and registrations are now open. We are encouraging all schools to enter a team to help us to spread our Be Wise message to End the Coward Punch. When you register you can elect to join Whitefriars College team and your friends and family can also join the team.

As in previous years, the Walk will start at Warringal Park Heidelberg and follow the Yarra trail through the Banyule Flats before turning off to the Plenty River Trail up the hill and down the other side to finish at the Lower Plenty Football Ground where Pat loved playing football. Total distance is around 8km.

At Warringal Park, the Heidelberg Cricket Club will be selling Bacon and Egg rolls and drinks and we will have a coffee van to give everyone their Sunday morning fix of caffeine.

At the finish line at Lower Plenty Football Ground, we will have BBQs running as well as Slow Eddy’s Texan BBQ to keep the hungry hordes fed and the bar will be open after 12pm. We will also have music / entertainers and a big jumping castle / slide for the kids at the ground to make it a real ‘Day on the Green’ feel. The Five C’s car club will also have a huge display on the oval of classic cars.

Registration fee for Adults and children 12 and over is $30 and for children under 12 is $15.
