The Be Wise App by the Pat Cronin Foundation (PCF) was established in 2016 to honour Pat Cronin who died as a result of a coward’s punch. As a non-profit organisation, the Pat Cronin Foundation was built to raise awareness of senseless physical violence and provide education to ‘Be Wise’ by deterring physical violence that can result in the coward’s punch.
The Be Wise App from the Pat Cronin Foundation has been developed to help deliver the Foundation’s key message by delivering educational information to young people, and by intervening with notifications to young people when they are out socialising to remind them to ‘Be Wise’.
The Be Wise app is available for iOS and Android phones
Using geofencing function, the Be Wise App can send out a notification to young people while they are out with mates, which remind them to “be wise and act carefully” when they are out — reinforcing the message of the foundation, and acting as a reminder to young people to be conscious of the risk of alcohol-related violence when out.
The Be Wise App, which is available on the App store (Apple iOS) for iPhones and also on Google Play for Android phones, provides access to the Pat Cronin Foundation online shop and events, and links to support services for mental health and emergency services.
Together, we can End the Coward Punch.
Be Wise. Think Carefully. Act Kindly.
At the Pat Cronin Foundation our vision is simple—a world free from the Coward Punch.
We work to achieve this vision by providing an optimistic voice and empowering approach to awareness, education and research—working with schools, clubs, community groups and young people to End the Coward Punch together.
