My story

[p]I am running the 2020 London Marathon in memory of my mother Ann Smallwood for the charity Contact.org.uk which was very special to her. Having trained as a nurse and after a break to have 3 children Mum retrained in child health & development. When identifying development or disability issues in children during her work Mum realised there was little official assistance she could direct families to. BUT the charity Contact a Family (the original name) had just been set up and Mum got involved arranging a branch in Gloucestershire.[/p][p]My wonderful mother died in March 2018 and in the April I ran the London Marathon. I saw the banner that is in my profile picture, a banner for Contact.org.uk which I knew was the new name for the charity having researched it for donations in leu of flowers.[/p][p]In 2019, when I ran the marathon fundraising for an arthritis charity as my mother had dealt with arthritis all her adult life, I specifically looked out for the Contact banner again. Seeing it and their supporters stood nearby cheering all the runners I wondered if they had London places, I phoned to ask, and they do.[/p][p]Though I ran London in 2019 in memory of my mother, Ann Smallwood, I feel very honoured to be running in 2020 in Contact colours and fundraising for a charity that meant so much to her.[/p][p]Contact supports families with getting the best possible guidance and information and they bring families together to support each other.[/p][p][br][/p][p]With the April marathon date having been postponed I am running my own marathon but over 7 days. I am running 4 miles for 6 days then finishing with the little 2.2 on Sunday as I will probably not manage much more with having ran the previous 6 days![/p]
