One of Australia’s most popular and fastest growing fundraising events, raising vital funds to support people living with multiple sclerosis.
Welcome to the MS Mega Challenge!
Rebranding in 2020, the MS Mega Challenge started off as a humble swim under the brand MS 24 Hour Mega Swim. The first MS 24 Hour Mega Swim was founded in 2001, held at Fitzroy swimming pool led by Carol Cooke AM, Paralympian.
The program has since expanded to 16 swims across ACT, NSW, VIC and TAS and grown to encompass not only swim, but squash, racquetball and badminton – with more sports coming soon!
Recently, additional time durations were introduced, allowing for a 12-hour challenge. People of all ages and abilities can take part in the MS Mega Challenge.
All MS Mega Challenge events are beloved team relay sports, that raise much-needed funds for people living with multiple sclerosis. We can’t wait to keep expanding and make a BIGGER impact for people with MS.
Funds raised from MS Mega Challenge events contribute to the MS Go for Gold Scholarships, Financial Assistance Programs and providing services to directly benefit people living with multiple sclerosis.

MS Mega Challenge can be organised by a community organisation or a corporate group, supported by MS to carry out the event.

We are excited to announce some new initiatives for the 2021 MS Mega Challenge events
Measures will be implemented where possible to ensure we can achieve the planned initiatives to the best of our ability. Initiatives include reducing the amount of waste created during the event preparation and providing participants clear information about availability of bins and the type of rubbish that they take.
