Big Little Walk Of Hope
The Big Little Walk of Hope – Friday 24th May 2019
Welcome to the Big Little Walk of Hope – a great new annual fundraising event that we’re inviting adults and children across the UK to take part in.
What is the Big Little Walk of Hope?
With Wear A Hat Day being such a nationally celebrated phenomenon now, we wanted to bring you something else that you and your family or school could do. Something that would help with children’s education, provide some inspiration for parents and teachers, whilst helping us fund the fight against brain tumours.
The idea is simple: Just create a walk for children around an outdoor area near your home or school – in your local park, along the river, following local footpaths or nature reserves, along a beach or even as laps around a school field – whilst fundraising for our cause.
We think this event will appeal to children up to the age of 12, but teenagers could still join in to help adults look after younger kids, for example.
Once you’ve completed your registration, you can start planning and promoting your event. You’ll find some useful ideas here once you've registered to help you create and fundraise for your walk with your school or nursery children, or with your family.
Why take part?
Children on the Big Little Walk of Hope can discover more about the environment whilst enjoying fresh air and gaining exercise.
What’s more, by taking part you’ll also be fundraising for us and helping us to take 'big little steps' in our journey to find a cure for brain tumours, the second biggest killer of children overall after accidents.
Tom Meager had a brain tumour at 26. Five years later, Tom is fit and well, and will be taking his family on a Big Little Walk of Hope event in Milton Keynes in May in support of our cause that is so close to him and his family.
