Every year in Australia approximately 110 women, children and men die because of domestic and family violence. The Darkness to Daylight Challenge is a symbolic run with 1km for every life lost but also the ones left behind.
Individuals can take on the whole 110km; teams can relay 110km through the night; and many others can join the challenge of the last 10km run or the 3km walk - representing our community and all the services that are there to help those faced with danger and despair.
The lead runner will hold a candle symbolising the hope that people living with domestic violence feel when finding the courage to speak up and get the support that seems so out of reach. Services are available – but it takes all of us to make a stand.
If you want to speak out about domestic violence and help bring those affected out of the darkness and into the daylight, register at www.darknesstodaylightchallenge.com.au.
