Preventing child sexual assault is the BIGGEST CHILD PROTECTION CHALLENGE we are facing in Australia today.
Every two hours in Australia, a child is sexually harmed in some way. It could be a child in your life, or someone you know. It doesn’t discriminate.
You are invited to take up the challenge by getting involved in White Balloon Day on Friday 4th September 2020.
This event is proudly supporting BRAVEHEARTS and now also the ACRF with part proceeds being donated.
To ensure this remains as a fun low cost, low key successful community running event we will need to rely on the assistance of volunteers. Please notify if you can help out on the day.
Bravehearts key purpose is to educate, empower and protect Australian kids from sexual assault
Their vision is to make Australia the safest place in the world to raise a child by 2020.
