Jonjo Heuerman's fund-raising schemes have now netted the Bobby Moore Fund for Cancer Research in excess of £55,000.
The ten-year-old Hammers fan completed his second marathon walk in aid of the charity on Saturday morning, having been joined along the 23-mile route by a host of well-wishers and fellow Hammers fans.
The youngster, who lost his grandmother to the same disease that cost Hammers legend Moore his life 19 years ago this month ended his second annual three-day walk in front of the World Cup winners' statue at the top of Green Street ahead of the match with Crystal Palace.
There he was greeted by West Ham's co-chairmen David Gold and David Sullivan, young Hammer Dylan Tombides plus a marching band who escorted Heuerman and his merry band of marchers to the Boleyn Ground.
The walk raised in excess of £15,000 to add to the £40,000 young Jonjo - with the considerable help of his elder sister Megan - had already previously raised for the fund.
