The Pat Cronin Foundation is honoured to have a number of high profile individuals who have agreed to be Ambassadors for the foundation. Our list of Ambassadors is growing and includes the following people:
Matthew “Richo” Richardson is a retired Australian rules footballer and current media personality who represented Richmond in the Australian Football League (AFL). Matthew was one of Pat’s favourite players.
Kevin Sheedy AM is a former Australian rules football coach and player in the Australian Football League. He played and coached in a combined total of 929 games over 47 years from 1967 until 2013, which is a VFL/AFL record. Sheedy was inducted into the Australian Football Hall of Fame in 2008.
Grey Davies is Victorias first Victims of Crime Commissioner. He was a member of Victoria Police from 1977 and obtained the rank of Senior Sergeant. In 2002 he joined the Police Association of Victoria where he served until his retirement in 2014. Greg is a advocate for victims of crime and has been only too happy to help spread our message to Be Wise.
Matthew Keenan is an Australian International cycling commentator who can be heard each year on SBS’ coverage of the Tour De France.
Here are some words from Matthew: I support the Pat Cronin Foundation because I have two young children who I want to be safe when they go out, as everyone in the community deserves to be safe.
It’s actually hard to articulate why I support the foundation because there isn’t a single good reason not to. Anything that reduces any form of violence is a great cause, particularly cowardly acts of unprovoked violence.
Matthew’s reach to a worldwide audience will definitely help us to spread the word to Be Wise and to End the Coward Punch. We look forward to a wristband photo or more from the Giro or Le Tour later in the year.
Andrew Gaze, AM is Australia’s most decorated basketball player having played 612 NBL games, ranked 1st in points scored and won 7 MVP awards.
He has the record for the most Summer Olympic Games played by an Australian Basketball player and famously was the flag bearer and team captain for Australia at the Sydney Olympics in 2000.
He is currently the coach of the Sydney Kings in the NBL. He and his wife Melinda have four children and therefore is only too happy to add his voice and reach in our message that There is No Excuse and that we need To End The Coward Punch

Four years ago Pat made his senior debut for the Lower Plenty Football Club as a skinny 17 year old. Pat loved playing with his mates for the Bears. The events of this week have simply highlighted the need for us all to continue to push for changes in attitude at all levels that violence of any sort is not acceptable. Thanks for all of your support we continue to spread our Be Wise message. #PC12 #Spreadingtheword #BeWise #Thereisnoexcuse #Endthecowardpunch ...
