Darkness to Daylight is Challenge DV’s community education, awareness and fundraising event for domestic and family violence prevention.
It is a 110km challenge, with each kilometre symbolising a life lost through domestic and family violence in Australia in the year the event launched.
The event was developed by Robert Reed OAM, Special Counsel at MinterEllison. Following a life-changing trip to participate in the American Indian Movement's Sacred Run held in Japan in 1995, Rob developed the Darkness to Daylight challenge to give the community an opportunity to do something physical and meaningful about domestic and family violence prevention and gain a deeper understanding of the issue.
Over the years, Darkness to Daylight has grown from strength to strength, thanks to our incredible Foundation Partners, MinterEllison, who have been part of Darkness to Daylight from day one and the incredible support from the Queensland Government and our other amazing sponsors.
In 2023 it will commemorate its 10th anniversary and it’s set to be our biggest yet!
