The origins of One Day Fun Day™When FunSearch CEO Chris Gillard was around the age of eight or nine, he found a young runaway the same age, called Lawrence, hidden in his home in Brisbane. As kids will do Chris and Lawrence immediately made friends. Like millions of other kids around the country that day, Lawrence then spent the day happily playing with Chris and his sister at their home, skateboarding, trampolining, riding BMX bikes, running around and just being kids, being active outside. But unlike many others, as night fell Lawrence had no other option but to be taken back to his home, a secure facility for orphaned children and wards of the state. The day etched itself in Chris's memory.Odonata Operations Director Sam Marwood and FunSearch CEO, Chris Gillard have known each other for years and often discussed ways they might activate positive changes through their business, government and NFP networks. The two organisations formalised ties in 2018 to develop and launch the initiative.One Day Fun Day™ was devised by Chris and supported by Odonata to help find fun for kids just like Lawrence, and many more across Australia.
