About the event

On Wednesday 7th June our close friend Ed Smith will set off on his first of 5 consecutive Ironman length triathlon events(2.4mile swim, 112mile cycle, 26.2mile run) in 5 consecutive days, raising money for Daisy’s Dream who support children and young people who have lost a loved one. 

Ed will be completing loops (approx 25-mile bike and 6-mile runs) around West Berkshire and using @tearoomsaldermaston as a base so come cycle or run a loop then treat yourself to coffee and cake afterwards. This equates to 5 Ironmen length triathlons in 5 consecutive days for Daisy’s Dream A challenge inspired by Ed’s late wife, Anna, who died from bowel cancer in 2018 when their little girl, Alba, was only 18 months old. 

“Everyone grieves differently but imagine being a young child when one day a parent is there and the next day they are gone. How confusing this must be for them. Alba was only 18 months old when her mum, Anna, died from bowel cancer. Alba was so young that she could not fully communicate how she was feeling. Ed days as a widower, and dealing with my own grief, I sometimes had no idea how to help Alba or if I was doing the right thing. Daisy’s Dream helped guide me through Alba’s grief offering support and advice. Advice on things to say and do and also reassurance that how Alba was reacting was normal and that I was doing nothing wrong.” 

Each year Daisy's Dream support around 700 children and young people through their bereavement. Whether they are facing the death of someone they love or have already experienced their loss, our professionally qualified Therapeutic Practitioners are on hand to offer families the support and guidance they need.
