I just got an email to say I’ve met my fundraising target of $1000 - unbelievable! I’m pretty overwhelmed to say the least. What generous friends and family I have! 

Best I get my running shoes on as this is definitely the motivation I needed after a couple of lazy days. 

Might as well increase my fundraising target while I’m at it hey?! 

Thanks so much everybody. While this is somewhat of a personal challenge for me in terms of commitment, fitness, mental toughness and overall development - it’s motivated by a desire to see an end to the violence that kills far too many, and impacts many more. My running won’t dismantle the patriarchy, but it will raise awareness and help me to know my own power. 

Thanks again 💜

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

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.
