John Hughes Big Walk

 Thank YOU!

To everyone who made the 2016 John Hughes Big Walk such a fantastic event!

To all the walkers, volunteers, sponsors and partners, our heartfelt thanks for making this year so great – we have raised over $85,000 for the hospital and there are still registrations and on the day donations to count!

Fundraising is still open and we encourage you to continue to fundraise and collect from those who have pledged to support you.

At just one month old, Beau was diagnosed with cancer in his tiny foot. He endured six months of chemotherapy but his cancer was so invasive that when he was seven months old he underwent an amputation just below his knee in order to prevent it spreading further. Read his full story.


Six year old Ayda survived a virus that attacked her heart and very nearly took her life four years ago. Her doctors have since discovered that the growth plates at the top of her shins were 90% destroyed when she fell ill. Read her full story.
