Pat Cronin Foundation Be Wise Walk to the Valley 2019

Published on Monday, October 14, 2019

The fourth annual Pat Cronin Foundation Be Wise Walk to the Valley is being held on Sunday November 17 and registrations are now open.

The Pat Cronin Foundation was formed in 2016 following the senseless death of Pat Cronin, who was killed by a single Coward Punch.

All NFNL clubs are encouraged to enter a team to help spread the Be Wise message to End the Coward Punch.

When you register you can elect to join a team and your club should be on the list to join. If your club is not on the list, you can create a team for you, your teammates, friends and family to join.

The Walk will start at Warringal Park Heidelberg and follow the Yarra trail through the Banyule Flats, before turning off to the Plenty River Trail up the hill and down the other side to finish at the Lower Plenty Football Ground, where Pat loved playing football.

The total distance of the walk is around 8km.

At Warringal Park, the Heidelberg Cricket Club will be selling bacon and egg rolls and drinks, and a coffee van be present to give everyone their Sunday morning fix of caffeine.

At the finish line at Lower Plenty Football Ground, BBQs will be running as well as Slow Eddy’s Texan BBQ to keep the hungry hordes fed and the bar will be open after 12pm.

There will also be music/entertainers and a big jumping castle and slide for the kids at the ground to make it a real ‘Day on the Green’ feel. The Five C’s car club will also have a huge display of classic cars on the oval.

Registration fee for adults and children (12 and over) is $30 and for children under 12 is $15.
