The Queensland Police Service (QPS) is committed to working with the community to raise awareness and prevent domestic and family violence, Queensland Police say.
This year, during Domestic and Family Violence Prevention Month, QPS members will be participating in the Darkness to Daylight Challenge, May 23-24.
The Darkness to Daylight Challenge is an initiative of Australia’s CEO Challenge that raises awareness and funds for programs to promote awareness and prevent domestic and family violence.
The Challenge consists of an overnight 110km run, with each kilometre symbolising a life lost to domestic and family violence. This can be done as an individual, or as part of a team.
Runners also have the opportunity to participate by joining the final 10km or 3km the following morning at their own pace.
Additionally, for those outside Brisbane, there is a ‘virtual’ option to complete the 110ks in 24 days, by running, walking and jogging.
The QPS is encouraging members of the public to get involved by running, walking or volunteering to support this important cause. You can find more information and register through the Darkness to Daylight Challenge website.
