ARE YOU WITH US?

Join us at the Australian Institute of Sport on Saturday 3 August 2024, for the 2024 Canberra MS Mega Swim and make a life-changing impact for people living with multiple sclerosis (MS).

There are over 33,300 people living with MS in Australia and everyone’s experience is unique. Living with MS is complex and unpredictable with varied symptoms that range from mild to severe. They may flare up once in a while, or last for long periods of time.

Funds raised contribute to the MS Go for Gold Scholarships, the Plus Financial Assistance Program and provide services to directly benefit people living with multiple sclerosis.

Make a splash this August in the 2024 Canberra MS Mega Swim!

SWIM

Join us at the AIS on Saturday 3 August 2024 and SWIM TO FIGHT MS!

The MS Mega Swim is a fun, team relay event, where swimmers are sponsored by friends, family and colleagues to freestyle, backstroke, butterfly or doggy-paddle for 24 hours, whilst raising vital funds to support people living with MS.

Swimmers of all ages and abilities are welcome - swim one lap, or fifty, for ten minutes or four hours. Your team just needs to have one swimmer in the pool at all times.

And if you don't have a team, let us know and we'll team you up with some other amazing mega swimmers.

Since being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 1998, 3-time Paralympic Gold Medallist and 9-time Para-Cycling World Champion, Carol Cooke AM PLY has dedicated her working life to raising awareness and funds for MS.

In 2001, Carol founded the MS Mega Challenge program with a 24 Hour Mega Swim at the Fitzroy Pool in Victoria. The program has since expanded to over a dozen events across the Australian Capital Territory, New South Wales, Tasmania and Victoria.

Nothing is impossible if we dare to face our fears and believe in ourselves. The greatest pleasure in life is doing what people say you cannot do.

The events raise money for the MS Go for Gold Scholarship program - scholarships which enable people living with multiple sclerosis to follow a dream - and also fund the Plus Financial Assistance Program and services to directly benefit people living with multiple sclerosis.
