Stichting Vluchteling is organizing the Night of the Refugees for the twelfth time, due to corona this year with a number of changes. In the weekend of September 11-12, hundreds of participants in six cities will walk a 40 KM nighttime route to raise as much money as possible for emergency aid to refugees.
The Night of the Refugee 2021
Unfortunately, there are no shorter distances this year, the participants cover a 40 kilometer course. We run in six cities: Rotterdam, Arnhem, Utrecht, Haarlem, The Hague and Tilburg and runners start and finish in the same city. The starting gun sounds at exactly midnight. We do everything we can to organize the most beautiful and safe night possible. That is why a maximum of 400 participants can participate per route. Whether we can admit more participants depends on the possible relaxation later in the year.
Participation en starting tickets
Because the organization entails more risks for us this year and we can admit fewer participants, we ask for a minimal sponsorship contribution for this edition. When collecting € 250.00 per participant you are assured of a starting ticket! You have until September to fund this amount. And more is always allowed of course! As soon as you are registered and you have collected at least 250 euros, you are guaranteed your personal starting ticket. Do you run together in a team? Then your team proceeds count! The starting tickets will be sent by e-mail at the beginning of September.
To raise as much money as possible for people who are fleeing war, conflict and oppression worldwide. In addition to raising money, the walkers also raise awareness in a positive way of refugees worldwide.
How far would you go out of fear of war and violence?
What remains unchanged? Together we walk through the night in a positive way to draw attention to refugees and to collect as much money as possible for emergency relief anywhere in the world. The number of starting tickets is limited, so register quickly!
