How it Works
Choose the journey that suits your fitness level, and your preffered activity- please see the FAQ's for more information. If you are taking part as an invidual, the 80km Naf River to Cox's Bazaar journey is the suggested option. If you want more of a challenge, then go for the 145km Damascus to Beirut journey. If you are joining as a team, the 425km Afghanistan to Pakistan is great, or if you want to really go the distance then the 1,175km Myanmar to Thailand is for the avid fitness folk!
Collect your kilomteres as you follow the journey to safety. You can use your app of choice; Fitbit, Map My Fitness, Strava or even an old-school pedometer! We will also have a kilometre conversion chart so that you can count your housework or gardening.
Ask your friends and family to sponsor you for taking on this challenge! Share your updates on your social media channels. If you join as an indivudual or a team, you’ll be fundraising to help people in crisis. We have heaps of help on our hints and tips page to get you fundraising like a pro!

‘It opened my eyes to the hardship that this family and many others have to go through in order to feel safe. The videos throughout the journey showed the amazing work that Red Cross does to help the families settle and become involved in the communities they are placed in.

Our friend Brad Shields, previous Hurricanes captain, helped us raise vital funds by stepping up and leading by example! Thanks Brad!
“It’s a fun challenge and it’s all for a good cause. It will definitely be interesting to see how many steps I do during training each week!”

“Join me doing Red Cross Journey. As a former refugee, I know the good work Red Cross does here and around the world, so I’m happy to support Red Cross through this event. And doing this will be good to get me active at the beginning of spring!”
