10,000 Walk for Harry with Free Radio

Over 10,000 walkers took take part in Free Radio’s charity events at the weekend.

Walk for Harry was created in memory of and as a tribute to Harry Moseley, who tirelessly raised funds for Cancer Research whilst fighting his own battle with brain cancer.

The station event included a 10 mile family walk and a 26 mile circuit around the perimeter of the city centre and raised in excess of £420,000 for Birmingham Children’s Hospital and Acorns Children’s Hospice who both offered support to Harry and his family during his illness.

Commenting on the success of the walk Phil Riley, Chief Executive of Free Radio said; “This has been a fantastic day. Over 10,000 walkers have given their time, commitment and energy to raise funds for two brilliant organisations in memory of Harry Moseley. Today’s Walk for Harry has proved how generous the people of Birmingham are as collectively they have raised over £420,000 which is a record in fundraising terms for these walks. Free Radio wants to thank everyone who has in some way helped and supported us with this event- it has been truly inspiring.

“This is the third walk we have staged in the past two years and we have now raised over £1million for local charities which is an incredible effort from our listeners.”

Harry died last October but it was a wish of his to have this charity walk staged in his name to raise funds for those who had helped and supported Harry and his family through his battle with cancer.
