Team story

[p]Despite ongoing disruption caused by Covid19, The Hall Triathlon Team is returning for another year and for another huge fund-raising effort. This year, more than any other, charities need our help. Blenheim Triathlon is taking place on 12 September 2021 and this year the Team has chosen to support three different charities, including a charity that will help 8 year-old Will (and others with his condition), the epileptic son of one of our team members and current pupil at The Hall. All donations, however small, are appreciated and will help us reach our ambitious target of £50,000. [/p][p][br][/p][p]Fundraising for meaningful causes has become part of the life-blood of The Hall School (an independent school in Belsize Park) and each year an ever-increasing number of members of the school community take part in Blenheim Triathlon in order to raise money for the school’s chosen charities. The team, which started with two Hall School mums in 2014, has grown to over 60 participants this year (all of whom are either participating in the triathlon itself or taking part in an organised cycle ride from London to Blenheim on the same day) – an inspiring and inclusive group of mums, dads, friends and teachers as well as representatives of charities the team has supported over the years. Many are first-time triathletes challenging themselves by training for months in three disciplines, often learning to swim or run from scratch. [/p][p][br][/p][p][b]This year, all money raised (including any gift aid) will be divided between the following three charities, all of which have suffered huge drops in revenues as a result of Covid: [/b][/p][p][br][/p][p][b]1. Coram’s Fields: a safe-haven for inner city children. [/b]Coram’s Fields is so much more than the seven-acre children’s park and playground that you may have visited. It also provides a range of vital community services that support the development and wellbeing of local children and young people, many of whom face considerable barriers (which have been exacerbated as a result of the pandemic) and a lack of green space at home. 175 children a day make use of the services and facilities on offer just behind Euston Station; they include (as well as the outside space and sports facilities) a music production room, an art studio and of course specialised youth workers who support under-18s, some of whom come from very complex family set-ups. [/p][p][br][/p][p][b]2. Apart of Me: Tackling the grief pandemic. [/b]Apart of Me is a relatively new charity (set up in 2018) that is dedicated to supporting bereaved children, young people and parents through an innovative app. The multi-award-winning therapeutic computer game translates bereavement-counselling techniques into a magical 3D world. Apart of Me helps young people make sense of how and what they are feeling and provides empathetic support as and when they need it. Supporting the app and the children that use it is an army of trained volunteers. With 4 million children and young people bereaved by Covid19, Apart of Me is on a quest to deal with this wave of grief – the high levels of anxiety and isolation otherwise often complicate grief and lead to substance abuse, offending, anxiety and even suicide. See the inspiring and innovative game yourself at [url=https://apartofme.app/]https://apartofme.app[/url][/p][p] [/p][p][br][/p][p][b]3. UCLH Paediatric Epilepsy Unit: Mental health care for epileptic children. (See also Plum Fraiser's separate fund-raising page for UCLH). [/b]Life for epileptic children and their parents is a rollercoaster ride; terrifying seizures occur, occasionally unnoticed, frequently and with little or no warning. Cocktails of drugs are experimented with and sometimes work but often don’t. Risks of every day activities are assessed on a minute-by-minute basis by anxious parents and the tussle between an innate drive to protect an epileptic child and the desire to allow her or him to live as normal a life as possible is very real. Hall parents Plum and Andy Fraiser know all this more than anyone; their 8 year old son Will was diagnosed with epilepsy when he was 4.[/p][p] Epileptic children grow into epileptic adults and ensuring that each of them is resilient enough to cope with a lifelong condition without being crippled by the constant fear is a balance that is only achieved with the right psychiatric care. Major London hospital UCLH has a fantastic paediatric epilepsy unit but is missing that element of care. The Hall Triathlon Team would like to help fund a full-time clinical psychologist to ensure that the children cared for in the unit receive the mental health support they need in order to manage their condition and enter adulthood confidently aware of the risks, but not afraid of them.[/p][p][br][/p]
