Join a journey

Take a walk in their shoes – follow the incredible journey of a former refugee family now living in New Zealand or see what it's like to be a Disaster Welfare and Support Team member deployed during an emergency in our own backyard.

Go the distance in your own time, between 8 May and 8 June 2017, and fundraise to support the work Red Cross does in your own community and around the world. 

How does it work?

Every step you take during a normal day can be counted towards the target - you can use an app, a pedometer or manually enter your distance. Once you’ve joined up and are on the move, you’ll receive updates when you reach each milestone, revealing the next stage of your journey.

For people less able to walk or run, you can do the distance in the usual way you get around (except for driving). Please contact us at for more information.
