My target 110 kms

Thanks for visiting my 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.

To incentivise your donations, I've attached little rewards to the below amounts (totally open to negotiation if you have a good idea though!)

$20 Add a song to my running playlist OR (TBC)
$40 Choose one song I listen to on repeat for a run
$50 Treadmill sprint one of the kilometres (and add a song to the playlist)
$70 Choose my attire for a run (shoes not included)
$100 Choose two of the above incentives OR suggest something!

$250 I'll pretty much do anything 

I appreciate any support (including your social media clout to help spread the word) because together we can end domestic and family violence.

I’ve been waiting to see where this takes you, how crazy you could get, the dress nearly had me but then I thought surely he’d dye his hair hot pink to get noticed on a run and get some more donations. Surely. Balls in your court. X

$70 - You will wear a dress if Eliza has one for you. Floral would be ideal. Also a women's sun straw hat. I'll cover the charge if you have to op shop. I want pics. $40 - you will also listen to total eclipse of the heart on repeat and think of me. You may also add 'I need a hero' to mix it up if you like.
