Darkness to Daylight 2018
Every year approximately 110 people die from domestic and family violence in Australia. The Darkness to Daylight Challenge covers a distance of just that – 110km, with each 1km representing a life lost to this disturbing epidemic. Held on the 23rd and 24th May 2018, the Run symbolises those lives lost but also the ones left behind.
Individuals will take on the whole 110km challenge, representing the isolation victims feel when dealing with domestic violence. Teams will relay the distance overnight, representing the families, friends and colleagues that are also affected. In the morning, many others will join in for the last 10km run or the 3km walk to represent the support, community and services available to help those faced with danger and despair.
Candles will be carried throughout the night to symbolise speaking out about domestic violence and bringing those affected out of the darkness and into the daylight. To join us in the fight and let your community know enough is enough, registrations for participation will be opening soon.
Darkness to Daylight 2017 Recap
From the Board and Staff of Australia’s CEO Challenge, our heartfelt thanks to the 2058 participants of this year’s Darkness to Daylight Challenge. We hope that all involved in this year’s event understand the significant contribution they made to continuing the prevention of domestic and family violence in Queensland. Through the generous contribution of racers and sponsors we were able to raise $372,530 in donations, which will contribute to the continuation of spreading Australia’s CEO Challenge’s message of raising awareness about domestic and family violence throughout the workplace.
