Walk 10k in solidarity with refugees on Saturday 29th October 2022 in central London.
Today over 100 million people have been forced from their homes in order to find a safe place to live, work and simply exist.
Whether they’re escaping violence, conflict or climate-related disasters, refugees are people just like you, who deserve to be treated with dignity, compassion, and respect.
What is Walk with Refugees?
Walk with Refugees is a sponsored, family-friendly 10k walk in central London, raising money to support British Red Cross’ work helping refugees in the UK and around the world.
The route will cross the River Thames three times and pass by many of central London’s most iconic sights.
You can take part on your own or as a team with friends and family. Take a leisurely stroll or pick up the pace with a power walk – either way you’ll be surrounded by a community of people who all believe that every refugee matters.
Along the route you’ll hear the incredible stories of strength and resilience of displaced people, showing you the life-changing impact your fundraising could have for someone who’s fled their home.
After the event there’ll be a location for quiet reflection, where if you wish you can write a note or message of solidarity for display on the Wall of Waves – symbolising the oceans many have had to cross in search of safety.
