2022 Canberra MS Mega Swim

I'M TAKING THE CHALLENGE TO FIGHT MS!

Apart from the physical challenge of distance swimming, I’m taking part in this event for the twelfth time 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?

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.

You know this is my preferred charity as the funds raised go directly to scholarships and the families needing support. I have seen this first hand and this is why I continue to  swim for this organisation. 


As always thank you again for your support.

Some words of encouragement for you ... There once was a man named Barham; whose goal, every year, he outswam. With grit and skill, in the cold and shrill; he would swim from Bruce to Braddon.
