Swim for OSCAR

A fundraiser by Jemima Turner
Image for Swim for OSCAR
Elsa and I are going to swim 4.8km of the River Thames from Chiswick Bridge to Hammersmith Bridge for the OSCAR Foundation... assuming we don't freeze, drown or get some deadly disease half way through. We've been training for the past few weeks in a reservoir in Windsor and Elsa has been to endless spin classes whilst I work on bulking up my shoulders. We're going to have our Mums as our support crew, in a kayak, paddling beside us (sounds safe...) and have borrowed some gear from a friend.
All of this is in the name of the most amazing charity called the OSCAR Foundation who I hope (COVID permitting) to be able to volunteer with next year. I met the boys football team from OSCAR back in 2019 when they came to Marlborough College during their tour of the UK. We are hoping to raise money and awareness for OSCAR's 'Disability Inclusion Project'. This project helps to support the children living with a disability who are the most marginalised and disadvantaged group in society. Children with disabilities are 5 times more likely to be out of school. The OSCAR Disability Inclusion Project introduces sport (Football) to children with many different disabilities like autism, hearing impaired, partially visually impaired, mute, cerebral palsy and learning disability. The Disability Inclusion Project removes negative stigmas and challenges cultural beliefs about disability by raising the profile and confidence of young people with disabilities.
Over the past few weeks we have been training for this swim. Any support will be so appreciated and all the proceeds will be going to the OSCAR 'Disability Inclusion Project'.
Thank you so much and follow us here, on facebook or on Instagram for updates.
