2021 Sydney MS Mega Swim

Not long now

Only a month to go. The team are getting time in water. I swam 6km yesterday morning - regret that this morning though :-)

Ramping up

Getting back into the swing again. Total distance last week 7.5km. Swam 2.55km yesterday in 1 hour - nice and slow. Little sore today...... 

Mid Feb - training has commenced

Phew - 1.5, 2.0 and 1.0km so far this week. Want to build up to about 8 or 9kms a week before the mega swim - that night shift is a long swim!!


We have entered the Mudgee Smugglers team into their 5th mega swim!! Monies raised all go towards the amazing support services offered by MS Australia for people with Multiple Sclerosis.

MS 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.
