Good luck to our amazing Great North Run supporters!

Friday 8th September 2017

The Great North Run, the world's largest half marathon, takes place this Sunday 10th September. We have five amazing runners who have been training and fundraising with all their might to help us continue supporting thousands of families with disabled children.

One of them is our parent adviser from Contact North East, Rachael Turnbull. Rachael says: "Running does not come naturally to me, but this year I have decided to attempt the Great North Run whilst raising money for Contact.

"Contact supports parents and carers of disabled children by providing invaluable support and information. I am fortunate enough to work for Contact and have seen first-hand the difference the charity makes to families throughout their child's journey.

"The run is my very own challenge and a small way to help raise funds and awareness of the charity so that they can continue to support families to feel confident in dealing with their challenges".

Support Rachael's Great North Run efforts.

We are incredibly proud of all our wonderful runners and wish them all the best of luck at the half marathon!
