I am taking part in this year’s Australia’s CEO Challenge Race, for the third consecutive year, to end violence in our homes and workplaces.

My position on domestic and family violence is clear. We must do everything we can to eliminate it from our community, support those who are impacted and build a culture that promotes safe, inclusive and equitable workplaces.

As a devoted family man and father of two children, I want to see my daughter and son grow up in a world where domestic violence is an issue of the past and is replaced by communities that foster and enjoy respectful relationships.

In recognition of my position to create positive change, I want to give this issue the prominence it deserves in the broader community and I’m asking for your support.

To play my part, I will be building awareness and raising money for this important issue from May until November this year. With the support of the community, I am confident to reach my fundraising target of $17,500. Please support whatever you can using the 'donate now' button.

The more people who know about Australia’s CEO Challenge and this meaningful cause, the greater the impact, so please spread the word by sharing my page with your friends and family.

Thank you for your support, your generosity is greatly appreciated and will make a difference.

TMR celebrated Queensland Week (5 – 9 June 2017) with a Queensland themed raffle. I was honoured to be presented with a collective fundraising effort of $3,000 from this initiative and these proceeds will be going towards Australia’s CEO Challenge Race. This is just one of many more promotional and fundraising activities we have on our agenda over the next couple of months. It was a fantastic effort and I’m really appreciative of the effort and continued support.

Kind Regards,
Neil

Last week, TMR continued our commitment to raising awareness about domestic and family violence by hosting the event ‘In Her Shoes’ for TMR staff. Simone O’Brien, former TMR employee, domestic violence survivor and White Ribbon advocate, bravely shared her story with a room of colleagues to raise awareness of this silent epidemic. As an accredited White Ribbon workplace, TMR is committed to fostering a safe, supportive culture and ending the violence.
