We’ll be proudly cheering on all our London Marathon runners this Sunday as they put months of training and hard work into practice!

We just wanted to say the very best of luck to all of our London Marathon 2024 runners and to thank them for raising vital funds for Contact – money that will help us be there for even more UK families with disabled children with our information, advice and support.

One of our runners, Jade a clinical lead nurse from Cambridgeshire says: “Over the last year I’ve been refocusing my values and the areas of my life that are important to me – one of which is reducing health inequalities for vulnerable children and young people.  Children with disabilities are so often overlooked alongside their parents who are faced with incredibly complex systems of support. Contact’s values and support for families with disabled children align closely with my own professional and personal priorities. The difference the charity makes is real – and inspiring to hear about.

“I also re-discovered running over the last year and the sense of community and accomplishment running provides has mentally been a source of comfort and strength. To be able to combine both these areas of my life by running for Contact really is a privilege. I am determined to raise money so that even more families can find the support they need from this fantastic charity!” 

We are truly humbled by their support to us and incredibly proud of each and every one of our London Marathon 2024 runners.

Good luck to you all!
