Every year in Australia approximately 110 women, children and men die because of domestic and family violence. Australia's CEO Challenge, with the support of law firm Minter Ellison, want to shine a light on this silent epidemic.
All sectors of Australian society can help end domestic and family violence. Join us as we run through darkness in to daylight with a candle lighting our way. Sign up today and take a small step towards our vision of a world safe from violence.
How can you get involved?
1. Run the whole 110km as a whole or relay the distance with a team in 3, 7 or 10km legs; 2. Run the last 10kms together with the overnight runners, as a team or individually; 3. Walk the last 3kms, as a team or individually.
The only 'rule' is that the candle will always be moving and will always 'light the way' with the front-runner.

The combined 110km run epitomises the challenge that is domestic violence. Each 1km will represent a person who lost their life in the previous year to domestic violence. We ask you to join the challenge and commit to speaking out about domestic violence.
