Darkness to Daylight

Darkness to Daylight (D2D) 2020 celebrates our 7th year of coming together as a community to raise awareness and funds for Domestic and Family Violence (DFV) prevention.

Darkness to Daylight is a symbolic 110km overnight run with each kilometre symbolising on average each year in Australia a life lost to DFV.

The purpose of Darkness to Daylight is to run with a message that those affected are not alone, that our community cares, that we can all make a difference, that DFV has to end.

Darkness to Daylight is held annually during May which is Domestic and Family Violence Prevention Month. In 2020 Darkness to Daylight will take place on the 27-28 May.

Participants can run the full 110km individually or take on the challenge as a team. Alternatively, there is a 10km and 3km run in the morning, giving people of every ability an opportunity to take part.

In 2019, we saw over 2,730 people take part in the event, with most people participating in their workplaces.

Money raised will go towards ACEOC, so we can continue our work in supporting workplaces to support those affected. It will also ensure that we continue to build our partnerships program which has positive impacts for frontline services including women’s refuges, men’s behavioural change programs and DFV frontline services.

Together, we can bring the issue of DFV out of the darkness and into the daylight.
