Thanks for visiting our fundraising page for the Darkness to Daylight Challenge!

In Australia on average 110 people die from Domestic and Family Violence (DFV) every year.

I’m participating in Darkness to Daylight (D2D) - a 110km run - where each kilometre represents one of those lives lost. It’s a long distance, it’s physically and mentally demanding but knowing the funds raised go towards DFV prevention makes it all worth it.

I would very much appreciate your support because together we can end domestic and family violence.

Thank you to our Sponsors

Nicky, your story reflected some of my story but your and your mothers' was much worse. Well done doing this fund raising event. Hopefully the victims and also the perpetrators (often themselves having been victims of abuse) can all be helped to understand violence is not right or the answer. xxoxx
