Good luck to all our marathon runners this weekend!

We’d like to wish good luck to all of our supporters running just over 26 miles and raising vital funds for Contact at the London Marathon this Sunday.

Runners like Neil who wanted to run and raise funds for Contact because his family was supported by HemiHelp, now part of the Contact family.

Neil decided to support us because HemiHelp was the biggest source of support to him and wife Kate when they were learning about hemiplegia, the condition that affects their son Harvey.

Neil said: “I chose to raise money for Contact because of the help and information that HemiHelp gave my wife and I particularly in the early years of figuring out Harvey’s condition. Everyone deserves the chance to fulfil their potential, and that’s why Contact needs your support.”

Neil has done a tremendous job fundraising for Contact and we wish all our runners the best of luck on Sunday. We are really humbled by your hard work – a huge thank you to you all and your supporters!
