Swimming the Catalina Channel to shine a light on suicide loss
Opportunity of a lifetime: Churchill Fellowship to support children bereaved by parental suicide
Drum roll please…it’s with great excitement, but also some trepidation, that I announce that I will be swimming the Catalina Channel on 8-9 August 2019. I passed my medical on Friday and I’ve got a pilot boat booked for the 20-mile (32km) swim from Santa Catalina Island off the Californian coast to Long Beach, Los Angeles.
I'm thrilled to be able to share the news that I've been awarded a Churchill Fellowship by the Winston Churchill Memorial Trust to carry out international research focusing on the support of children who lose a parent to suicide.
