Make every step count towards a violence-free future

Darkness to Daylight returns for its 11th year - back at Parliament House Brisbane on the 29th and 30th of May. Set to be the biggest one yet, join us as we enter a new decade of this very special community event and raise crucial funds to put an end to domestic and family violence. 

In Australia on average 110 people die from domestic and family violence every year. Darkness to Daylight is a 110km run, where each kilometre represents one of those lives lost. We don’t mind if you run or walk, if you complete 3km or 110km. We just ask that you run with a purpose and that you join us in standing up to domestic and family violence.

When you take part in Challenge DV's Darkness to Daylight event, you are making a stand, helping to drive community awareness and intervention, and raising crucial funds to help prevent domestic and family violence.

If you or someone you know is impacted by domestic and family violence, support is available.

Why Darkness to Daylight?

Darkness to Daylight is Queensland’s premier event for domestic and family violence awareness and prevention and Challenge DV’s major fundraiser.

Established by MinterEllison’s Robert Reed OAM in 2014, Darkness to Daylight gives the community the opportunity to do something physical and meaningful to contribute to domestic and family violence prevention, gain a deeper understanding of the public health issue, and honour lives lost, at any time, to domestic violence.

Funds raised go towards Challenge DV’s critical activities, including workplace programs, respectful relationships programs, strategic partnerships, and advocacy, all designed to prevent domestic and family violence in our communities.
