Did you know that every year 260 Australian children are killed, and nearly 60 thousand kids are hospitalised with injuries following accidents? It’s a fact that your child’s chance of survival is reduced by 10% for every minute he or she does not receive CPR. The action you take in those first five minutes is crucial to your child’s survival.

Danny understands this as a Dad and has accepted the challenge to learn CPR and have the skills to save a child’s life this Good Friday.

Danny has been on the television numerous times:  Utopia, The Project, The Footy Show, Rove [Live], The Circle, Santo Sam & Ed’s Total Football, The Mansion, City Homicide, Stand Up Australia, and he had one line in Steven Spielberg’s ‘The Pacific’.

He made his Hollywood debut in the Nicolas Cage thriller ‘Knowing’. He appears in the pivotal opening scene, meaning if you list the cast in order of appearance, he almost has top billing.

Despite all of these achievements, he is best known for writing funny things for footballers to run through. He’s okay with this. Go Dogs.n.

Come and meet this Funny Man and join him in the CPR Challenge.

Powered by KidzAid Paediatric First Aid Training, this fantastic event will join hundreds of other charities and child-focused programs on Good Friday 14 April, from 10AM to 5PM at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC) as part of Kids Day Out. There will be a Family Fun Day featuring celebrity challenges, princesses, and superheroes, and there will also be parenting experts on hand to provide information and advice.

It’s vital that as many people as possible are trained to be able to perform CPR in those first few minutes before professional medical help arrives on the scene. And, it doesn’t matter how young or old you are, anyone can learn CPR – so join us, sign up and learn to master this life-giving skill while raising funds for the Royal Children’s Hospital!
