Over the next few weeks, we’ll be introducing you to the brilliant team taking on the London Marathon to raise money for Contact.

Our first London Marathon runner, Charlie, has been training and fundraising to support Contact for the past two and half years!

Charlie was originally meant to run for us back in 2020. After several delays and cancellations due to the pandemic, the day is finally within sight. Yes, it’s slightly over two weeks to go until the London Marathon on Sunday 2 October!

Charlie wants to support us after learning about our work at his workplace, Fidelity. Charlie says: “I wanted to run the London Marathon for Contact as soon as I learned how vital your support is. When I met some of the families Contact works with, it was clear how valuable and how valued this charity is.” 

We are extremely proud and humbled by Charlie’s hard work and determination to be part of our team. A huge thank you to Charlie and to all our London Marathon runners.
