The Pat Cronin Foundation is honoured to have a number of high profile individuals who have agreed to be Ambassadors for the foundation. Our list of Ambassadors is growing and includes the following people:

Matthew Richardson

Kevin Sheedy AM

Greg Davies APM

Greg is a advocate for victims of crime and has been only too happy to help spread our message to Be Wise.

Matthew Keenan

Matthew Keenan is an Australian International cycling commentator who can be heard each year on SBS’ coverage of the Tour De France.

Here are some words from Matthew:

“I support the Pat Cronin Foundation because I have two young children who I want to be safe when they go out, as everyone in the community deserves to be safe.

It’s actually hard to articulate why I support the foundation because there isn’t a single good reason not to. Anything that reduces any form of violence is a great cause, particularly cowardly acts of unprovoked violence.”

Matthew’s reach to a worldwide audience will definitely help us to spread the word to Be Wise and to End the Coward Punch. We look forward to a wristband photo or more from the Giro or Le Tour later in the year.

Andrew Gaze AM

Andrew Gaze is Australia’s most decorated basketball player having played 612 NBL games, ranked 1st in points scored and won 7 MVP awards.

He has the record for the most Summer Olympic Games played by an Australian Basketball player and famously was the flag bearer and team captain for Australia at the Sydney Olympics in 2000.

He is currently the coach of the Sydney Kings in the NBL. He and his wife Melinda have four children and therefore is only too happy to add his voice and reach in our message that There is No Excuse and that we need To End The Coward Punch
