Go The Distance | Make a Difference 


At Refugee Women Connect, we're not scared of a challenge. We work tirelessly for social justice for all women refugees and asylum seekers, and we need your help in the fight against injustice and discrimination. 


We're looking for adventurous individuals who want to make a difference and take on a challenge to help support marginalised women. 


Whether you run, walk, or swim - or if you've been inspired by the Lionesses to give football a go! - we urgently need your help to raise money to support women in the Refugee Women Connect community. 


From seasoned pros to complete beginners, we'll support you on your journey and help you maximise your impact and reach your goals. Here's what some of our #fantasticfundraisers had to say...



"I ran Manchester Marathon to raise much needed funds for Refugee Women Connect. I couldn't think of a more worthwhile cause helping those in desperate need after having to flee their homes. This was my first marathon and RWC were extremely supportive throughout offering support and guidance to help me completely smash my original goal. I was made to feel very welcome, being invited to many of their events to meet the team. I would recommend fundraising for RWC to anyone." - Emma


"I did the Great North Run Solo Challenge over lockdown and managed to raise £500 - way over my initial target of £150! The challenge kept me fit, active and motivated, and it felt great to be fundraising for such a brilliant cause!" - Jenny


"I challenged myself to run Manchester Marathon 2021 and spent five months training and fundraising. A first marathon is really hard, but the more I thought about the circumstances of women seeking asylum or refuge in the UK and the unimaginable difficulties they continue to face, the less my own slight pain and tiredness seemed to matter, and the luckier I felt to be able to cross a finish line." - April 



If you're feeling inspired to go the distance and make a difference, we'd love to hear from you! Just email [email protected] to get the support you need to take on your challenge, and make real impact for women seeking sanctuary in the UK.
