The monies raised from the walk will be distributed 50% to HHHO and then 10% of net fundraising profits to the amazing charities below.
Help Harry Help Others
Help Harry Help Others was set up in 2011 by the incredibly brave Harry Moseley who sadly lost his battle with cancer in 2011, aged just 11 years old.
Passionate about his city and the people within it, along with those affected by cancer, he created HHHO to make a difference. Harry started the charity by making and selling beaded bracelets to raise more than £500,000 to fund brain tumor research.
HHHO brings back the Birmingham Walkathon, organising the walk to raise funds to continue to support anyone who is affected by cancer, as well as amazing charities around the West Midlands.
Birmingham Mind, the largest provider of mental health services in Birmingham, has a well-earned reputation for excelling in their support and service quality and they play a key role in supporting and influencing the wider mental health system across our city.
‘Better Mental Health For All’ is Birmingham Mind’s paramount vision, and to help achieve this they have worked hard since 1962 with those living in Brum who live with mental health problems by helping improve their lives, opportunities and choices as well as using the charity’s experience to remove the stigma and change the way people think and act about mental health.
Birmingham Mind passionately believe that everyone has the right to live lives that are meaningful, and which enable them to reach their full potential as individuals.
Birmingham Children’s Hospital
Birmingham Children’s Hospital has offered the very best specialist care for sick children for more than 150 years and their mission is to raise the vital funds that are needed to make a real difference to all who use their hospital services, in hopes to offer them the best experience possible.
Believing that there is always more that can be done for their sick kids, they strive to always go above and beyond for their patients and families.

Birmingham & Solihull Women’s Aid
Birmingham and Solihull Women’s Aid has been providing frontline domestic violence and abuse support services to women and children in the Birmingham and Solihull region for over 40 years.
