THEIR heartfelt message, born from tragedy, grows louder and louder each time it is delivered.

And the Morcombes - Bruce and Denise - know their inspirational crusade to promote child safety awareness is being heard.

More than 450 Fraser Coast people helped to communicate the cause on Saturday, as part of the Hervey Bay Walk for Daniel.

One of the event's organisers, Adam Vieglais, said it was great to see the wider Fraser Coast community show its support for the Morcombe's fight.

"We haven't finished counting the money yet but we have raised over $1500," Mr Vieglais said.

"There was 300 people who took part in the walk but there would have been another 150 that attended."

He said the $11,800 raised at the recent Fraser Coast Police Charity Ball was also presented to the Morcombe Foundation at the walk.

It was the couple's third visit to the region this year and comes in anticipation of next month's important Day for Daniel on the Sunshine Coast.

Now in its eighth year, the event was created following the abduction and suspected murder of 13-year-old Daniel Morcombe in December 2003.

His parents have visited 150 schools and spoken to more than 50,000 children in the past year promoting their child safety awareness message.

It is expected more than one million people will take part in Day for Daniel in 2012 throughout Australia.
