Isuzu Ute Drives Support for 'Day for Daniel'

Isuzu Ute supports 'Day for Daniel'

On the lead up to the Daniel Morcombe Foundation’s (DMF) annual ‘Day for Daniel’ landmark event on 25th October 2019, Isuzu UTE Australia (IUA) has proudly bolstered their partnership support with the charity, by way of providing an additional fleet of three Isuzu MU-X SUV’s.

In early October 2019, IUA supplied the foundation with three additional 2019 Isuzu MU-X LS-T’s, all finished in Red; the signature colour of the DMF. To date, these additional vehicles have aided the charity’s operations by providing much-needed mobility support, during the lead up to the not-for-profit’s largest event of the year—‘Day for Daniel’.

Since 2013, IUA has proudly supported the Daniel Morcombe Foundation, not only by participating in fundraising events but also by providing an Isuzu MU-X to Foundation founders—Bruce and Denise Morcombe—which has assisted them in delivering their safety curriculum to children across schools around Australia.

In remembrance of Daniel Morcombe, the annual ‘Day for Daniel’ is held on the final Friday of October, marking the Foundation’s national day of awareness, dedicated to advocating child safety and protection awareness programs across schools and communities nationwide. Participants are encouraged to wear red in solidarity, showing support and driving awareness and fundraising for the children safety.

“Isuzu [UTE Australia] has been a major supporter of ours for the better part of the past decade and without the support from our partners, we wouldn’t be able to spread our key ‘Recognise, React and Report’ message throughout Australian schools and communities,” said Denise Morcombe, co-founder of the Daniel Morcombe Foundation. 

“Day for Daniel is incredibly significant to Bruce and myself. It’s a day of both reflection and advocacy, and each year we are humbled by the united support of the communities involved,” Denise added.

As Australia’s largest child safety campaign, ‘Day for Daniel’, through education, advocacy and initiatives help empower children to Recognise, React and Report situations where they feel threatened.
