The 2022 Wollongong MS Mega Swim is a fun swim relay, where teams of at least 15 swimmers are sponsored by family, friends and colleagues to freestyle, backstroke, butterfly or doggy-paddle for 24 hours, 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! You just need one team member in the pool at all times.
Don’t have a team? We’ll help you find one!
EARN SOME MEGA FUNDRAISING GEAR
While the biggest reward for fundraising is knowing that you are making a difference to the lives of thousands of people living with multiple sclerosis, we would like to celebrate your amazing efforts and say thank you by giving you a little something extra!
Melanie is an artist. Her long held desire for art and creative practice led her to travel abroad, study Fine Art Painting at RMIT in Melbourne and exhibit regularly. She’s worked for over a decade in commercial galleries.
After the relapse that led to her MS diagnosis, Melanie had to rebuild the strength and dexterity in her right hand to enable her to continue to paint. Melanie’s MS symptoms had a devastating impact on her quality of life as she had to manage weakness, pain, tingling, painful scalp sensitivity and brain spasms.
“I went from being completely fine to having painful brain spasms, tingling and loss of strength in my right leg and complete loss of dexterity and strength in my right arm.”
For Melanie, MS stopped everything.
