PLAY YOUR PART IN DOMESTIC & FAMILY
Every year approximately 110 people (women, children and men) die from domestic and family violence in Australia.
The annual Darkness to Daylight Challenge is held at South Bank Parklands during Domestic and Family Violence Prevention Month.
The 110km night run, which can be run as a an individual or as part of a team, also includes an early morning 10km route and 3km walk for supporters. Every kilometre symbolises a life lost to the epidemic of domestic and family violence each year.
A major community awareness-raising activity, through its symbolism, the event represents bringing the issue and those affected out of the darkness and into the daylight.
The event will close out Domestic & Family Violence Month which commences with the annual Candle Lighting Vigil on 2 May 2018, where we will continue the tradition of re-lighting and handing over a candle to our lead runner at the beginning of the 110km overnight run.
Taking part is a physical way to bring attention to an important social issue, and for us to come together as a community to carry the message that domestic and family violence is not ok!
Run, walk, fundraise or volunteer! You can register as a team or individually and participate in either the full 110km run, or join the last 10km run or 3km walk.
