How much do I need to raise to be a Gold Bond runner?

Contact a Family has places for Virgin London Marathon 2014 and we ask each participant for a non-refundable £50 registration fee and to commit to raising £1,500 minimum sponsorship. However, if you have your own place, we'd love to hear from you and you can also support us by emailing our fundraising team.

How will Contact a Family support me?

With dedicated fundraiser support we will be on hand to offer you training and fundraising advice from the word go. We will be there on the day to cheer you on with our super cheering squad and provide cheer gear for your supporters. Plus we hold a post-race meeting point for you, your friends and family to present you with a goody bag and thank you for all your kind efforts in supporting families with disabled children.

How do I apply?

To apply to be a Gold Bond runner or for more information simply get in touch with our events team or if you have your own place and still wish to support our work, you can get in touch with us by emailing our fundraising team or calling us on 020 7608 8786.

The difference a day can your money can help:

  • £1000 runs a workshop, covering topics such as 'Managing Challenging Behaviour', 'Transition from child to adulthood', and 'Debt management.'
  • £2000 maintains for a year one of our local volunteer parent representatives, themselves a parent of a disabled child, to provide advice, information, emotional support and practical advice for parents in their local area.
