Triathlon for Autism...


Dear All ...

I'm taking part in the London Triathlon 2006 on 05/08/2006 to raise money for Chrysalis School for Autism and would really welcome your support.

I met Laura Dyer 8 years ago, we instantly became good friends! She told me one day that she and her husband had been trying for 15 years to have a baby, IVF and other such methods were used but without success. They decided to adopt and waited patiently. Eventually, they adopted a beautiful boy, William, who is now 10. It wasn't until he was 2 years old that she noticed he was different from the other children and had him tested for learning difficulties. She was told her son was severely Autistic. The shock was immense. However, since that day she has strived for the very best for William, her determination never wavering.
Herts. County has very little facilities for children with Autism; as a result, Laura decided to set up her own school to help William and his friends. The Local Education Authority was approached but they refused to help. After years of fundraising, sometimes having to use their own money, she has managed to open a school for Autistic Children. To insure the doors stay open fundraising has to continue, that's why I have decided to choose Laura's School as my chosen charity. I have entered The London Triathlon to help raise money so she may continue her dream...
