Amber Hilsdon, 35, of Romford, covered 31 miles in 10 and a half hours to support Isla Caton.
The 6-year-old girl from Hornchurch has neuroblastoma, a rare form of cancer, and needs to travel to the United States for treatment.
Amber bonded with her mum, Nicola, over their shared love of West Ham United and decided to do the walk to support them both.
“It was fine until about six hours in and then everything started to hurt, it hurt my knees, but it was totally worth it,” said Amber.
“It was definitely emotional when I got to St Paul’s and then watching support grow for it online as well was amazing.”
Amber has already beaten her fundraising target of £1,300 but is hoping to raise even more.
She thanked everyone who has donated already and said it means “everything to me” to be able to support Isla.
“I think she has been through so much and I want to 100 per cent be behind her family,” added Amber.
“I think that is everything that matters really, this is what community is all about.”
