My Story

I am a mother, I am a daughter, I am a sister, I am also a survivor.
In August 2019 I left a 14 year relationship with an alcoholic. I maintained such a different persona to everyone around me. I hid so much. I was so worried what people would think of me, or see me differently, Judge me, Judge my parenting. When I left I got a protection order in place, hid where I lived, and had to tell my children they weren't allowed to show people where we lived.  12 months later I am still on this road that never seems to end - but this road now I wont travel on my own and I wont silence the destruction that one person thinks they have the right to cause on someone. Always hold your arms out to those who share their stories with you but are too afraid to tell the world. I told my story and I had so many people surround me and help me. A new life doesn't automatically happen but slowly you begin to see the world around you as a different happier place.

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

Sharing our stories and experiences with DFV is an important way to reduce stigma and raise awareness of this prevalent issue. I am not afraid to tell my story. Through sheer determination and willpower and the support from my family and friends, I am where I am today, gradually reclaiming my life. I am walking for myself, my son, my daughter and every victim of abuse.

Every 1km in the 110km challenge represents on average a woman, child or man's life lost to Domestic and Family Violence. Together we are running through the night to bring Domestic and Family Violence out of the Darkness and into the Daylight.

With your support we can make a difference in the lives of those affected by Domestic and Family Violence, and help end the cycle of violence.
