The Riding Free of DV campaign aims to promote Ivan Phillips' 15,000 km solo motorcycle ride around Australia to raise awareness for the White Ribbon campaign, promote support services available and the impacts that domestic violence has on families.

In 2007, Ivan’s step-daughter Tash was brutally murdered as a result of sustained domestic violence attacks. Tash left behind a beautiful young son Josh and a grieving family.

After two years of court proceedings the offender was incarcerated for 30 years. But not long after Ivan also lost his wife and Tash’s mother, Di, to cancer.

Since then, Ivan has fought on, vowing to keep Tash and Di’s memory alive and raise awareness for the impacts that DV has on families.

In August 2016, he will be riding a motorcycle solo – 15,000 km around Australia as a tribute to Tash and Di and to also raise awareness for the White Ribbon campaign.

As a proud White Ribbon Ambassador from Port Lincoln, Ivan will spend three months traveling through every mainland state in Australia.

He will visit more than 55 rural and remote communities and host public speaking events to educate people and families on the signs of DV and the type of help available.

Ivan is very fortunate to have international superstar 'Orianthi' as his campaign’s official Patron. Orianthi was the lead guitarist for Michael Jackson and has performed with many music legends including Alice Cooper, Carlos Santana, Slash and Jason Derulo. She is currently writing and recording music with Bon Jovi guitarist, Richie Sambora.
