The Daniel Morcombe Foundation’s Big Red Truck will take up a prominent position at Palmer Coolum Resort during next week’s Australian PGA Championship to actively promote child safety during the tournament.
With thousands of guests and visitors expected to stream into the resort, the Big Red Truck’s presence will help to maintain awareness levels and continue to spread the vital child safety message through the community.
The truck is packed with child safety materials and is used at a variety of school and community events to deliver critical information and resources to children and parents.
From December 13th to 16th the Big Red Truck will be located at the main entrance to Palmer Coolum Resort, guaranteeing maximum exposure and visibility.
Palmer Coolum Resort General Manager, Bill Schoch, said he is very pleased that the resort could play a role in delivering harm prevention initiatives to a broad audience.
“We are delighted to join forces with the Daniel Morcombe Foundation to actively promote child safety messages to the community,” Mr Schoch said.
“Keeping our children safe is a commitment we all share and that is best achieved by distributing awareness information and safety skills to both children and parents alike.
“Thousands of people will be visiting Palmer Coolum Resort between the 13th and 16th of December for the PGA Championship so the truck will be seen by plenty of people.
“We encourage as many people as possible to visit the truck and see first-hand the great work the Daniel Morcombe Foundation does for the community,” he said.
The Daniel Morcombe Foundation was established in 2005 to raise awareness of child safety. For more information visit
