The Great Family Walk

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).

How your support will help

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.
