Together we inspire. Together we move. Together We Run.
Run or walk 26 miles in 26 days for the 26 million refugees around the world.
Take on the challenge this October and together we can raise vital funds to help refugees to rebuild their lives.JOIN US
Run, hop, skip or walk 26 miles (more or less) you decide. Sign up and we'll do the rest.
Link your page to your Strava account, so your distance and donations are in one place. Don't have Strava? Don't fret, you can update your miles manually.
Grab your friends and family - get them to donate, like and share. Why not ask them to sponsor you per mile? (you'll raise more money!)
Everyone who takes part receives a Together We Run virtual medal (to show off to your friends!) Once you’ve raised £26 we’ll send you your very own Together We Run t-shirt. When you reach £100 you’ll also get a snazzy pair of socks. And if you’re one of our top 5 fundraisers, you’ll get your hands on a limited edition hoodie!
Keep an eye on how much you’ve run, walked or raised – have you made it to the top 10? Remember, the top 5 fundraisers get a special limited edition hoodie!*
*everyone who takes part gets a special place in our heart!
As a charity, we’re reliant on donations from our generous supporters like you, so thank you for being a hero for refugees!
You could help families like Hani’s who fled Syria to seek safety. Hani was jailed and tortured by extremists and missiles rained down around the family home. Friends and family were scattered, some forever lost. With the help of UNHCR and supporters like you, Hani and his family have been resettled in the rural town of Ottery St Mary, Devon, under the government’s community sponsorship programme.
“Here I know everyone. It’s my new life. I can’t believe I’m here now. I look out of the window and find it hard to believe,” Hani told us. “When I sleep, I dream nice dreams now. Gone are the bad dreams. I try not to remember anything before 2018.”
UK for UNHCR is the UN Refugee Agency's official UK charity. We raise funds and build solidarity to help protect refugees around the world through UNHCR's relief work.
Thanks to our generous supporters, we can help deliver life-saving aid like shelter, food and water, help safeguard fundamental human rights, and ensure people have a safe place to call home.
The Together We Run challenge is completely free to sign up to. To get your hands on an exclusive Together We Run t-shirt, we’re asking participants to raise at least £26 but anything you can raise for refugees is hugely appreciated.
Once you’ve filled in the sign-up form, a page will be created for you so you can start fundraising right away. You’ll be able to customise it and share it with friends and family.
Your fundraising target is £100, but the more you can raise for refugees, the better. Join our Together We Run Facebook community for handy tips on how to boost your fundraising, inspiring stories and to meet your fellow walkers and runners.
Once you’ve signed up, you’ll need to link up your Strava account to your GivePenny page. Strava is free to download and you can find out how to set up an account here.
You can use other fitness apps, but we do recommend linking Strava to your page as it’s integrated and easy to use. You can always log onto your page and manually update your distance.
You can start tracking your miles from 1st October up until 26th October.
To receive a Together We Run t-shirt for raising £26 or over, you’ll need individual fundraising pages. While children can’t have a page of their own, they can have a page that is set up by an adult. If you need more info on this, get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Yes! If you’re raising money online, your donations will be sent to us directly, but you can still collect funds offline. Click here to find out how you can pay in your donations. Otherwise, you can pop us an email at email@example.com.
