John Hughes Big Walk

The John Hughes Big Walk is not a race, you choose your pace and walk, jog, skip or dance your way around one of three courses – 6km, 11km or 15km.

The John Hughes Big Walk is a fantastic family event that raises much needed funds to help kids in hospital. This year, funds will go to the Perth Children’s Hospital. The John Hughes Big Walk has raised over $1.9 million since partnering with the PMH Foundation (renamed Perth Children’s Hospital Foundation) eight years ago.

This year, every adult registrant will receive a free Perth Children’s Hospital Foundation pocket pal wristband! The perfect place to store your keys and money while walking, these pocket pals are just what every Big Walker needs.

You can pick up your free wristband at the Perth Children’s Hospital Foundation marquee on event day, so what are you waiting for – register now!
