In 2022 Darkness to Daylight (D2D) celebrates 9 years of coming together as a community to raise awareness and funds for Domestic and Family Violence (DFV) prevention.
In Australia on average 110 people die from Domestic and Family Violence (DFV) every year. Darkness to Daylight (D2D) - a 110km run - where each kilometre represents one of those lives lost.
Casey Cardinia Triathlon Squad has joined with club sponsor, MetaGene, to raise funds for DFV prevention.
Team CCTS-MetaGene are committed to running/walking from Melbourne to Cairns* (2,750km relay) in the month of May. Each team member will run/walk as much as they can during the month to contribute to the total team goal of 2,750km.
It’s a long distance, it’s physically and mentally demanding but knowing the funds raised go towards DFV prevention makes it all worth it.
Visit our D2D page: https://www.darknesstodaylight.org/fundraisers/cctsmetagene to join the team or donate.
