Charity ‘walkathon’ to support people with disabilities!
Ten charities took part in a giant ‘walkathon’ through Birmingham’s Cannon Hill Park on Sunday 25th June to celebrate inclusion and raise money for people with disabilities.
Cerebral Palsy Midlands were joined by Birmingham Phab Camps, Resources for Autism, Together Minds CIC with Noah’s Star charity, SEND Socials CIC, Headway Birmingham & Solihull, CASBA Advocacy, SENSE, Father Hudson's Care and NICE Charity UK (Conductive Education). The charities are local to Birmingham and find walking together and collaborating works really well.
Sarah Lilly, Cerebral Palsy Midlands development officer, said:
“We all do our own individual fundraising as a sponsored walk, but we all walk together to strengthen the message and importance of inclusion in Birmingham.
“The reason why we pick Cannon Hill Park is simply because it is the most accessible and inclusive park in Birmingham with wider pathways, ‘Changing Place’ toilet facilities based at Midlands Arts Centre (MAC), and plenty of disabled parking.
“All of the family can take part in our event, it really is a suitable, inclusive and accessible event for everyone.”
All charities who particpated this year are set to start prepping for the next years event as this year was a huge success. We would like to thank our 'Wheel'n'Walk event supporters;
