Every step counts.

All over the world people are joining a global movement, in solidarity with families forced to flee their homes.

Join other Australians and walk, run or cycle the distance refugees travel when fleeing their home.

From South Sudan to Uganda, Myanmar to Bangladesh or Syria to Jordan, refugees have endured long and difficult journeys. Families, single mothers and children forced to flee violence and persecution - taking extraordinary efforts to survive. Discover the perilous journeys they’ve taken, the challenges they’ve overcome and the extraordinary work of UNHCR field staff.

Whether you’re a walker, a jogger or a passionate athlete, you can join this truly global effort and make every step count for refugees. You can walk alone, with your family, friends, colleagues or with your school or university.

Read the inspiring story of Australia for UNHCR's National Training and Development manager, Israr, who walked an incredible one million steps for refugees in 2020.
