NAPCAN is excited to be partnering with Run Against Violence to help ensure that every young person in Australia has the opportunity to learn about what a respectful relationship looks like for them.
The 2021 Run Against Violence (RAV) Virtual Challenge is aiming to raise $90,000 for our Love Bites program to fund facilitator training in remote, regional and metropolitan communities throughout Australia!
When is it?
The challenge starts anytime Monday 30 August 2021 and finishes midnight Friday 17 September 2021 so can be completed as part of National Child Protection Week!
Do I have to RUN?
No! Within your team you can choose to walk the distance if you prefer. If you use a wheelchair you can roll the distance. It’s up to you and your team to support each other.
How far will I need to walk/run each day?
You and your teammates will support each other to complete 1300 kms over the 19 days of the Virtual Challenge. You can split this up within your team however you like, with some doing more and some less. Teams can have up to 20 people which means you only have to walk or run 3 – 4 km per day. The more people you have in your team, the less distance each team member needs to travel!
What if I’m an individual looking for a team?
No problem. When you go through registration add yourself to the team “Find me a team”, pay for your entry and the lovely people at RAV will take care of you from there.
Do I have to fundraise?
No! (But you can if you like). The Challenge is as simple as paying your registration fee and you’re good to go!
Let’s help make the RAV Virtual Challenge the BIGGEST running event in Australia so we can help prevent relationship violence and sexual assault in our communities. More info here.
Get a group of friends or colleagues together or even encourage your students to set up a team themselves!
