The Squids

2024 Fitzroy MS Mega Swim

WE'RE TAKING THE CHALLENGE TO FIGHT MS!

In 2023, staff from across Caulfield Grammar School came together to raise money for Multiple sclerosis by participating in and fundraising for the MS Mega Swim. 


Thanks to the amazing efforts of our swimmers and the generosity of the CGS community last year, we swam over 64kms over the 24-hour period and raised over $13,000 for this cause.

 

We are reforming to take part in the 2024 MS Mega Swim at Fitzroy Pool in the hope of raising $10,000+ for 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 Plus Support Services. Services such as MS Plus Peer Support Groups, connecting people who are newly diagnosed with those who have lived with multiple sclerosis for a number of years, or the Plus Employment Support Service keeping Aussies living with multiple sclerosis in the work force.

Thank you again for your support.

Thank you to our Sponsors
