History of the Refugee Walk
The Refugee Walk has been organized since 2016 already. Every year the number of participants grows exponentially! Over the past editions, we have grown from 700 in 2016 to as many as 1,600 participants in 2022. This shows that there is still huge support in Belgium for people fleeing their country. Now perhaps even more than ever! This year, we hope to see as many enthusiastic participants at the start again, to spread our message furthermore.
In 2023, we are already organising the eighth edition of this great event. In the past, we already passed in Genk (2016 and 2017), Mechelen (2018) and Leuven (2019 and 2021) and last year we ended up in Antwerp (2022). Over the years, the concept has already changed and broadened a lot.
