Story behind the Foundation
On Saturday the 16th of April 2016, Pat went out to a local bar / café for a quiet night and he was punched from behind whilst assisting a mate. He was later taken to hospital and two days later his family made the agonising decision to turn off his life support system.
The Pat Cronin Foundation honours Pat by providing an optimistic voice to awareness, education and research about the coward punch. The Pat Cronin Foundation is dedicated to helping people feel empowered to make change through wise decisions.
