How the Great Family Walk works

Take on a family challenge this June and walk 42 miles - where, when and how you like. Stroll through the streets, conquer the countryside or pound the pavements, it's up to you! 

Everyone's miles will count towards your goal as you spend quality time together and walk the distance of the Mount Kilimanjaro climb. Plus, you'll be supporting other families by raising money to help build the new Children's Cancer Centre at Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH).

Why your miles matter

The money raised through the Great Family Walk will help build the Children's Cancer Centre at GOSH and help to beat cancer for more children. It will be a world-class facility designed with children like Sumayyah, pictured, at its heart.

GOSH already cares for children with the hardest to treat cancers and new treatments are giving hope to children across the UK. But these advances have outstripped GOSH's current cancer facilities. 

We need your help to build a new home for breakthrough treatments and pioneering research, so we can help save more lives. 

Together we can Walk it. Build it. Beat it. 

Your donation will go to support the vital cancer care services at GOSH, including the refurbishment of GOSH buildings, upgrading equipment, pioneering research, kinder treatments and offering vital welfare services to our families during their time at GOSH.In the event that costs change, additional funds are received over and above our target, the needs of the hospital or patients change, we reserve the right to redirect funds for use against the hospital’s most urgent needs.
