Run Against Violence – Queensland Road Trip

Share This Post

Run Against Violence (RAV) are amazing supporters and partners for NAPCAN’s Love Bites program. Their work is dedicated to raising awareness of domestic violence and money for the primary prevention of violence (including funding a grants program for NAPCAN’s Love Bites Program). As with Love Bites, it’s all about having those critical conversations every chance we can.

Promotions are in full force to encourage participation in this year’s Run Against Violence Virtual Step Challenge starting 30 August 2023. It’s a fun and healthy way to be part of a movement to raise funds for Love Bites grants and start conversations to help prevent relationship violence.

Co-founder of RAV, Kirrily Dear, is currently travelling around Queensland to meet supporters and promote the campaign. The tour includes Cairns/Atherton (12 May), Townsville (13 May), Hughendon (14 May), Mt Isa (15-16 May), Winton (17 May), Barcaldine (18 May), Emerald (19 May), Gladstone (20-21 May), Sunshine Coast (22 May), and Gold Coast (23-24 May) and Brisbane (25-27 May). RAV will be attending a wide range of events along the way including running with groups (confirmed include Emerald Parkrun on 20 May), talking at schools, chatting to media, and screening the RAV documentary. If time permits, she’d love to meet as many Love Bites facilitators and other supporters as possible.

If RAV is passing through your town, and you’d like to try to meet up please email Paige at
