Take on Red Cross Journey and challenge yourself to walk in the shoes of a volunteer responding to a disaster or a former refugee family seeking safety. Follow their journey, hear their stories and make a difference for people in your community and around the world.

How does it work?

Red Cross Journey is all about walking in someone else’s shoes. Choose a journey to follow, clock 10,000 steps each day between 8 May and 8 June and get people to sponsor you.

Along the way, you’ll receive updates marking your milestones and sharing more about your chosen journey.
By taking part and fundraising, you’ll be helping Red Cross do good things across New Zealand and around the world.

Which journey will you take?

Choose to walk Disaster Welfare and Support Team volunteer Kath’s journey and cover 240km during the month – that’s about 10,000 steps a day – or get a team together and follow the Tamim family's route to a safer life, covering 1,000km.

Registrations are now open. Sign up and make every step count!

With the wild weather hitting many parts of New Zealand today, it’s important to be prepared for widespread flooding, heavy rain, slips, and wind damage. You can be prepared by ensuring your emergency kits are fully-stocked and you’ve got plenty of water.

* Find out which items to put in your emergency kit
* Keep an eye on MetService weather updates for more information. Remember to check in on your neighbours to make sure they’re OK. Stay safe on the roads, and consider altering your Easter travel plans.

With hundreds of Bay of Plenty residents already hit hard with severe flooding, we’ve launched an appeal to help. Many families will never be able to return to their homes. 100% of donations will go to those in need, please donate now.

Stay safe!
The team at New Zealand Red Cross
