    Our Champions


    Sean Follows

    Day for Daniel Champion

    “As a parent and current serving police officer in WA, I hold a very high regard for child safety. Along with the Foundation, it is important to provide parents and educators the tools and resources necessary for keeping kids safe.

    Being a part of the Champion Program is important to get the message to children that the resources are available to assist them in all aspects of safety and self-preservation.”


    Zara Butt

    Day for Daniel Champion

    “I work for the Department of Justice in WA and have three primary-aged children. I became a Champion to support the Foundation’s vision of a future where children are free from abuse and risk of harm. It is so important for children and adults to be educated on child safety and to be empowered to ‘Recognise, React and Report’.

    Day for Daniel is a lasting legacy to Daniel and it is fantastic to see the community come together for a fun event that raises awareness.”


    Peter Williamson

    Day for Daniel Champion

    “I was a Day for Daniel ‘Champion’ in 2015 and was able to successfully liaise with educational providers in my area and support them in their involvement in this child safety program. I welcome another opportunity to be directly involved in this excellent initiative.


    Nadine Edwards

    Day for Daniel Champion

    “I have been a supporter of the DMF team from when I first met Denise and Bruce on the Sunshine Coast back in 2008 while on holidays. I am a big advocate of child safety and the protection of children.”


    Robyn Partridge

    Day for Daniel Champion

    “Children are very vulnerable in so many ways without them realising it. I would like to do all that I can to ensure all children are as safe and protected as possible by having some simple strategies to use if they should ever be in need. I believe it needs to be a community effort to keep our children safe.”


    Lucy Miller

    Day for Daniel Champion

    “As a mother of three children and a passionate teacher I am a strong advocate for childrens safety and want to help support the Foundation and their mission to keep kids safe.”


    Simone Walton

    Day for Daniel Champion

    “I think Bruce and Denise are such a great inspiration and provide so many resources for the community. I would love to be apart of this and help raise awareness around child safety and contribute towards making a safer environment for our children. Children are so innocent, and bubbly little spirits and we (as parents, teachers, carer’s) focus so much on the love towards our children, that its easy to forget about and lack awareness around predators, and what can go wrong. I have seen too many stories on the news, of unthinkable, and unimaginable things that unfortunately are very real in our community. I want to help make a difference in keeping our kids safe and I think it starts with awareness and education.”
