Raising money for Headway in memory of their dad, Brad, who sadly passed away from a brain injury in the summer of 2019, Ozzie and Chloe Visser have taken on the challenge of individually swimming the 21 miles of the English Channel – in swimming pools and open water – and their mum has agreed to match them mile for mile meaning that she is swimming 42 miles!
They started this epic challenge of the 13th July and aim to end by 20th August which was the date of Brad’s funeral. They have already faced some challenges along the way from high temperatures and 90% humidity, ear infections and changing from pool swimming to open water swimming. The children have remained upbeat though and have been real troopers.
As their school, all at the Oratory Prep are immensely proud of both Ozzie and Chloe and wish them lots of luck for the remainder of this incredible challenge. If you would like to support their fundraising efforts for Headway you can donate to their justgiving page at https://www.justgiving.com/
