Join Team CAV in the Wangaratta Marathon and Fun Runs


This year, lace-up for more than just a run – join Team CAV in the Wangaratta Marathon and Fun Runs and become a catalyst for change. Our goal is simple, to raise awareness of the Centre Against Violence and how to access our services, make a community stand about family and sexual violence and engage the community in healthy and connected activity.


The first 250 registrants will receive an exclusive free CAV shirt, setting the stage for the Centre Against Violence's groundbreaking #StandUpAndDoWhat campaign. Jaime Chubb, CEO of the Centre Against Violence, declares, "This is not just a marathon; it's a movement. Joining Team CAV is your first step towards standing against violence.


As you jog, walk, or run as part of Team CAV, the impact extends far beyond the marathon course.


This year, our National Community Attitudes survey results unveiled a serious issue – 2 in 5 people are uncertain about how to access family violence services. Wearing the CAV shirt aims to bridge this gap, by creating a visible support network and spreading awareness of who we are and what we do. The survey also revealed that many people don’t think family violence is in an issue in their own community. These are both statistics that we need to change. Family violence happens everywhere, in every neighbourhood and everyone needs to know how to access our service when you, or someone you know needs it.


Join Team CAV, wear the shirt, and let's go beyond words. It's time to turn our collective commitment into action. The Wangaratta Marathon and Fun Runs are not just about the race, it’s a powerful platform for change. Stand with us and do what it takes to end violence.


This transformative campaign led by the Centre Against Violence is proudly supported by Edge FM, 3NE, and the Wangaratta Sports and Aquatic Centre. These partners are not just supporting a marathon; they are endorsing a movement that stands against violence and works towards lasting change.


The exclusive CAV shirt is not just sportswear; it's a symbol of your dedication to a violence-free community. Wear it with pride and become a walking billboard for change, sparking conversations and spreading awareness about our mission.
