Walking piece details

All over the world people are joining a global movement, in solidarity with families forced to flee their homes. Join today and together we will walk, run and cycle the distance refugees cover each year to reach safety.

Families who have been forced to flee make extraordinary efforts to survive. In solidarity with them, at a time when there are more and more global crises forcing people from their homes, we are coming together to honor their resilience and determination to keep their families safe.

Together, we are challenging ourselves to cover two billion kilometres in 12 months, just as refugees worldwide do each year to reach the nearest point of safety.

From South Sudan to Uganda, Myanmar to Bangladesh, Syria to Jordan; they have endured long, dangerous and difficult journeys.

“It was a very terrible journey, we had to cross jungle and climb huge hills”, says Alin who fled Myanmar and carried her two young children for ten days until they reached safety.

Through this collective effort we will show our solidarity, build better understanding of refugees and raise money to protect refugees and help them to rebuild their lives.
