Great Big Push sponsored walk Sunday 7th May at Cannon Hill Park, Birmingham
This years Great Big Push sponsored walk took place Sunday 7th May around Cannon Hill Park. All of our community, able and disabled citizens, partners, care professionals, staff, families and friends all come together to walk, push, be pushed, run or cycle from 2k to 10k around the park to help fundraise for Birmingham based charity Cerebral Palsy Midlands. This year is our 70th anniversary and we celebrated wearing bright and colourful 70's style wigs, glasses and hats whilst walking around the park to draw attention to what we were doing.
So far we have raised £1451.94!
