Darkness to Daylight - Challenge DV

In Australia on average 110 people die from Domestic and Family Violence (DFV) every year. Darkness to Daylight (D2D) – is a 110km run – where each kilometre represents one of those lives lost. The event drives community awareness and intervention, and raising crucial funds to help prevent DFV.

Challenge DV (formerly Australia's CEO Challenge) partners with workplaces to raise awareness about domestic and family violence through training, events and partnerships.
