I accept the challenge

What is the Night of the Refugee?

In the middle of the night, thousands of people participate in a 40-kilometer long sponsor walk in different provinces across the country. For example, there's a route from Rotterdam to The Hague, from Nijmegen to Arnhem, from Utrecht to Amersfoort, and from Amsterdam to Haarlem. It's a demanding but unforgettable experience. The starting signal sounds at exactly 12:00 midnight. On Saturday 20 June, there will also be earlier, shorter routes of 10 and 20 kilometers in Rotterdam and Amsterdam.

Our goal?

To raise the highest possible amount for emergency aid to refugees and regionally displaced people, together with a group of thousands of people. For people fleeing from war, conflict, and oppression worldwide. In addition to raising money, with their participation, walkers positively raise awareness for refugees worldwide.
