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.

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

Day 1: Kirra-Lea McLoughlin

Saturday 1st May
"Later on it went quiet and I didn't hear anymore."

Here we are day one of this extremely important challenge raising awareness, funds, and starting life saving conversations around family and domestic violence.
Every kilometre of the 110km represents a woman who has been murdered at the hands of their spouse or partner each year on average. Let that sink in for a moment. 

Today I’d like to honour Kirra-Lea McLoughlin, at 27 years of age this beautiful woman’s life was stolen from her. Kirra’s story is extremely harrowing, and it is her story that changed me and the way that I view the world. Kirra died of massive trauma to the brain and had over 100 bruises to her body. Her partner flew into an out of control rage and started “shaking her and her head was slamming against the floor”. Neighbours recall hearing harrowing screams of someone fearing for their life and yet some shrugged it off as they had heard fights from the house before. 
Kirra and her partner (who I will not name as he does not deserve any recognition) went to bed. When he woke the next morning he recalls Kirra had wet herself and he could not wake her and got “scared”. He then waited to call the ambulance making a personal phone call first and then fled the scene before they could arrive. Kirra-Lea McLoughlin was barely alive. She was flown from Gympie hospital to the Gold Coast University hospital where she died shortly after arrival. 
This is why I always say if you see something, if you hear something don’t shrug it off please report it or say something, it honestly could mean the difference between life and death. 

Kirra-Lea McLoughlin, beautiful woman, today I walk for you ♥️

The Journey Begins

Friday 16th Apr
In recent months through conversations sparked by yet more death as a result of domestic and family violence, I have come to realise that is time for me to start DOING something instead of just talking. So I have decided to participate in D2D to raise awareness around this issue. Over the month of May I will be walking 110km and tracking my progress as I go. Please follow along and feel free to donate if you can, if you can’t that’s totally fine but please instead have a conversation around this issue with your friends or family, please instead if you see something say something. Together let’s show our support for all the unfathomably brave women and children who have faced this monster, and let’s shine a light into the dark! 🤍🤍
