Step 3

Raise funds to help others

Join Red Cross Journey, a fundraising step-challenge with a difference.

You will learn about a real-life journey from someone involved with Red Cross, while raising funds to help people in need.

The more you walk, the more you’ll learn about the journey you have chosen to follow, through regular updates via email, social media and even post! 

You will learn about global and local events, and get to know real people who have been affected by disaster or conflict. 

As you walk 10,000 steps a day, you will receive updates of your chosen journey to keep you motivated along the way!

You can join as an individual, team or school. Your fundraising efforts will go towards helping others, just like the people you will learn about.
