Join the Walk with MIRIAM challenge in solidarity with refugee and migrant women and girls.

Each year, millions of refugee and migrant women and their families travel thousands of miles to seek safety and security. The funds you raise through the challenge will directly support WONDER Foundation’s work with migrant and refugee women in the UK, Poland and Slovenia, helping them and their families thrive in their new communities.

Today, there are more than 26 million refugees worldwide and 79 million displaced people around the world, over half of whom are women and children under the age of 18. As COVID-19 has shown, solidarity is more important than ever.

Pick a challenge related to the numbers 26 and 79. For example, you could challenge yourself to run 26 miles through the month of June or to walk 7.9 miles on World Refugee Day. Sign up for the challenge below to receive your fundraising toolkit and get started!
