telling the kids' story

For 19 days in 2017, solo ultra marathon runner, Kirrily Dear, ran 1300km from Broken Hill to Sydney to give a voice to the often silent victims of family violence. 

Family and domestic violence is increasingly being recognised as the social challenge of our time. Public conversation around the issue is building; however, we often overlook the children - those who hear and see the violence, or are directly targeted. Too often, these children don’t have the chance to tell their own story.  In 2017 we asked the nation to stop and listen to these young people.

If you would like to give a voice to these children then connect with us on Facebook and Twitter, participate in our virtual challenge and attend a community event.
