Good luck to our Hackney Half Marathon Team!

Friday 17th May 2019

This Sunday, we have four fantastic runners pounding the streets at the Hackney Half Marathon to support Contact, including our superstar By Your Side Parent Adviser Ruth Stone!

The route will take runners along Mare Street through a carnival of sound, pass by the famous Town Hall, head through the historic Broadway Market, and then take in Hackney Wick, which is flush with vibrant street art. Explore green spaces including Haggerston and Downs Parks, cross over twelve canals and rivers, and enjoy a panoramic view of the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.

We are incredibly proud of all our runners who have been training very hard over the last few months as well as raising much needed funds to help us continue supporting thousands of families with disabled children.

Contact has places in next year's Hackney Half Marathon and many other events across the UK. If you or anyone you know would like to take part in any of our events, please ask them to get in touch with me directly and if you wish to sponsor Ruth and give her that final bit of encouragement to get her through this run, please donate.

Good luck to everyone!
