About Walk for Daniel:

About Walk for Daniel

The Daniel Morcombe Foundation held the first Walk for Daniel in November 2005. This Walk for Daniel is the Daniel Morcombe Foundations “Day for Daniel” Event. It is held annually on the Day for Daniel in Palmwoods on the Sunshine Coast. The walk follows the same path that Daniel walked from Palmwoods to arrive at the Nambour Connection Road in Woombye, where he waited for the bus to the Sunshine Plaza before being abducted and murdered. The walk is approximately 4km long, starting at Sunshine Coast Christian College in Woombye and finishing at Briggs Park in Palmwoods.

The aim of this walk is to raise awareness of child protection, safety and harm prevention.

The objectives of Walk for Daniel are:

  • To raise awareness about child safety and to promote a safer community for children
  • To educate children regarding their personal safety
  • To attract and maintain public donations and bequests
  • To honour the memory of Daniel Morcombe
  • To raise funds from public and Government entities to support the above objectives
