2021 Hobart MS Mega Swim

WE'RE TAKING THE CHALLENGE TO FIGHT MS!

Aside from looking forward to joining others in the fun and atmosphere on the day, we are taking part to raise funds to support people living with multiple sclerosis.

Multiple sclerosis affects more young people than any other chronic neurological condition and average age of diagnosis is 30 . It can strike anyone at any time and the symptoms vary so widely.

For instance, can you imagine waking up one day unable to do the everyday things you would usually take for granted? Like not being able to see properly (or at all), you physically can’t get out of bed, can’t walk to the phone to call someone – anyone – or live a life without pain?

All of a sudden your world has changed.

By being part of this event, and because of your generous sponsorship, the funds we raise will allow people living with multiple sclerosis to access vital MS Support Services. Services such as MS Peer Support, connecting people who are newly diagnosed with those who have lived with multiple sclerosis for a number of years, or the MS Employment Support program keeping Aussies living with multiple sclerosis in the work force.

Thank you again for your support.

Thank you to our Sponsors

All the best of luck to you and Molly! We’re doing this for Diana and all the other people who suffer MS symptoms. Let’s hope a cure (or a way to keep the symptoms at bay) is found soon! You’ll both come out wrinkled prunes in 12hrs. Xx
