Tony Hudgell lives in Kings Hill in Kent, Southeast England.
He is a 5-year-old boy, who is a double amputee with two prosthetic legs, has raised more than $1 million for the NHS hospital
that saved his life, by walking a total of 10km, in just 30 days.
He lost his legs due to abuse from his biological parents when he was just weeks old. He suffered multiple fracture and organ failure and was fighting for his life for 41 days. He was with life support at the Evelina London Children’s Hospital
His biological parent was jailed for 10 years for child abuse. He was adopted from foster care Paula and Mark Hudgell.
Initially, he set out to raise £500 to raise money for the hospital by walking throughout June. But, surpassed his target with a total of over 1 million pounds.
Tony was inspired to complete the challenge after watching Captain Tom Moore, a 100-year-old war veteran who walked 100 laps in his back garden to raise funds for the NHS.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson awarded him the Prime Minister’s Points of Light award.
