Mum steps out to increase child safety awareness
NOW in its third year, the Fraser Coast Walk for Daniel came about because of one woman's desire to raise awareness of child safety.
Jodie Tangikara, whose 10-year-old son was born the year Daniel Morcombe went missing, says she has seen alarming instances of child safety threats in the local community so decided to raise awareness through this event.
"I can appreciate all the hard work that the Morcombe Foundation is doing and if I can contribute in some way then I have made a difference for myself and other families," the mother of four said.
"I have been very appreciative of the support received by local businesses.
"I can now boast over $4000 in prizes including a skydive into the event, as well as a VIP family pass to Movie World/Seaworld/Wet and Wild, family passes to Australia Zoo and Dolphin and Whale Watching tours."
Raffle tickets are available from Jodie at the Nikenbah markets.
The 3km walk starts at the Seafront Oval on September 7 at 9am and goes to Enzo's at Scarness and back, followed by a family fun day until 5pm.
Entry is a gold coin.
