Walk Everyday May is an event to help raise awareness and encourage people to reach out to victims and survivors of Family Violence.Family and domestic violence is the main reason women and children leave their homes in Australia (FaHCSIA 2008). There is a lot of misunderstanding about victims of Family Violence and they are often characterised as anti family but all they need is understanding and people to be there for them. Intimate partner violence is just one type of domestic violence and I am to bring awareness about family violence in my practice.
Walk Everyday May is event like 40 hour famine where you aim to do any amount of steps over 10,000 everyday in May and have sponsors to help encourage you to keep to your goal and to donate to the cause.
On the 31st of May participants are encouraged to throw their sponsors a party to thank their sponsors at the end of the event.
