The Birmingham Zombie Walk has, since 2009, been held entirely to raise money for the Birmingham Children’s Hospital.
Every year, over 225,000 sick children from across the UK are treated at Birmingham Children’s Hospital.
Many face incredibly difficult circumstances. Their stories of courage, determination and hope are truly amazing. The hospital team’s medical and nursing teams provide the best possible treatment and the very highest standards of care, but we want to do so much more for the children who rely on us.
The charity’s arm raises £6m each year to create modern and child-friendly environments; purchase state of the art medical equipment and fund research into the prevention and treatment of childhood illnesses.
They cannot do this without public help. By supporting Birmingham Children’s Hospital every year, the Birmingham Zombie Walk hopes it can contribute towards making a real difference to the lives of thousands of children and families, when they need it most.
Birmingham Children’s Hospital Events Manager Lucie O’Reilly (pictured), explains:
“We have been overwhelmed by the support of the Zombie Walk team who have raised over £30,000 for Birmingham Children’s Hospital since the event began in 2009.
“Due to the organisers hard work and dedication this event has grown in popularity each year attracting over 1,000 ‘zombies’ at last year’s event. We can’t wait to see what this year’s event holds and want to say a massive thank you to the Zombie team for their continued support and friendship.” she said.
