Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

Hi I am Rachel and I am running the London Marathon on the 21st April 2024 raising money for Contact – For Families with Disabled Children. 

A little bit about me, I am a working mum with 2 children.  My youngest son, Harvey, is 8 years old and is Autistic.  He is non-verbal and needs help with all aspects of self-care.  He has learning and developmental disabilities.   He is my world and I wanted to raise money and run for a charity that supports disabled children and their families.   

Contact support families in so many ways and are a lifeline to many.  A few examples; they run free workshops, organise free days out, provide SEND holiday clubs, offer 1:1 support and are always there to provide free and confidential advice on all aspects of caring for your disabled child.  They regularly campaign to the government supporting and safeguarding disabled children.  

London will be my third marathon and I am determined to come in under 5 hours (my fastest previous marathon was 5 hours 5 minutes).  I appreciate times are hard for everyone financially, but if anyone can spare a few pennies to help me to reach my fundraising target, it will be much appreciated 😊🏃🏻‍♀️
