White Balloon Day raises awareness of child sexual assault, and funds to support Bravehearts which is an organisation dedicated to making Australia the safest place in the world to raise kids. Bravehearts does this by actively educating our kids to make them less vulnerable, as well as lobbying on their behalf to improve laws and services around this social cancer.
Highway Thunder is a convoy of thousands of cars, trucks, motorbikes and other roadworthy vehicles travelling from the Hyperdome car park to Parklands Gold Coast under a police escort. All vehicles proudly displayed “Protect our Kids” car flags in a show of support for the victims of child sexual assault.
In addition to raising important community awareness about child sexual assault, Highway Thunder is an important fundraising initiative which enables Bravehearts to continue its’ programs and services to educate, empower and protect children.
Ned Kelly won “Best Truck” and “People’s Choice”. Below are some photos from the day.
