Here’s how it works:   
  1. Choose your challenge: Select from four distance challenges, each representing a different part of Birmingham. You can take on one challenge for £15 or conquer all four for £50. 
  1. Make your challenge your own: Decide when, where, and how you complete your distance. Whether you prefer morning runs, evening walks, or weekend bike rides, Medal Mission gives you the freedom to fit your miles into your everyday life. 
  1. Make a difference: By raising money for Birmingham Hospice, you will go the distance for local people living with a terminal diagnosis, and their families. 
  1. Earn your medal: You can track your miles using Strava or by adding your miles manually onto your fundraising page, to feature on our distance leaderboard. You will also receive a paper tracker to stick on the fridge! Once you’ve completed your challenge, you can proudly wear your well-deserved medal!

Roger's Story

In 2023, Roger Cross took over two million steps in aid of Birmingham Hospice, walking over 1,000 miles and raising £605. 

Roger said: “2023 marked the 10th  anniversary of my mother, Beryl’s, death, having been cared for by the Hospice at Home Team during her final months, a special effort seemed to be in order.” 

“Most of the walks I enjoyed, but there have been times when I’ve been tired, when my feet have hurt, even times when I’ve felt like giving up. 

“But this has never been just about me; it’s been about the hospice, the people at life’s end, the professionals supporting them and helping them to live with dignity.”  

Sign up today to follow in Roger’s footsteps and support more patients just like Beryl.
