One of our great supporters Janice has travelled to Bhutan and visited a local rural school where she helped us to spread the word to Be Wise and to End the Coward Punch wearing her PC12 long sleeve top and her Be Wise wristband.
Thanks for thinking of Pat in your travels Janice.
We are very pleased to announce the next official Ambassador for the Pat Cronin Foundation with international cycling commentator Matthew Keenan accepting our invitation.
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.
PS - Pat Cronin Foundation cycling jerseys are available for purchase via our online store.
I shared Pat's story with my Year 2 class on National Anti Bullying Day and one of my sweet students went home and told her mum about Pat. Her mum said they cried about it and decided to write this poem together.....
