Today more than three million Australian workers are at work dealing with the impact of domestic and family violence but a unique event is giving their colleagues a chance to change their workplace culture to support them and raise funds to deliver workplace training around domestic violence.
Anyone can take part in The Race, a fundraising and awareness initiative from Australia’s CEO Challenge that sees business leaders compete against each other between now and November this year to raise both awareness and funds to help keep workplaces and homes free from domestic violence
Jacque Lachmund from Australia’s CEO Challenge says “Domestic violence is more than just statistics It’s real people lives. We have a domestic violence epidemic in this country and we need to support those who are suffering and those who want to change their behaviour and let them know that they are not alone. We are doing something about it.”
Jacque says ‘We know our racers will be extremely successful once again in raising both awareness and funds. The money they raise means we can support people affected by domestic and family violence. Getting involved in The Race means you really are making a difference to people’s lives now and in the future.’
This year’s edition of The Race is already underway and runs until the beginning of November so there’s still plenty of time left to make a difference if you’d like to take part.
