Miles for Refugees

How far could you walk, run, swim or cycle?

This September, the British Red Cross is asking you to make your miles count - whether you are running a marathon, cycling to work or just walking the dog.

Refugees are travelling huge distances to escape conflict. They often end up many miles away from the loved ones they had to leave behind.

During September you can choose whether you want to run, walk, cycle or swim (or a mixture of activities) and log your miles online while raising sponsorship. Every mile from you helps bring a family back together.



All Team Red Cross participants will receive a fundraising pack, full of tips and advice, plus professional one-to-one support to help you raise as much as you can. Our National Events team (Kerry, Karina, Sarah, Maddy and Julia) will be on-hand to support and encourage you with your fundraising and throughout your event.
