2022 Wollongong MS Mega Swim


Aside from looking forward to joining others in the fun and atmosphere on the day, I’m 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.

Anyone believe in fate? 
Last week I popped down to Kmart for last minute forgotten school supplies, in the car park a mum of a little 9 day old bub called me over, she asked me for some help with her carrier. Long story short she has MS and giving birth has triggered her symptoms to progress much quicker than the drs anticipated. Instead of being at home enjoying little newborn snuggles in the early morning, she was out getting supplies as they had to renovate and sell their home quickly. What a strong woman 👊

This touched me deeply as this month I'll be participating in the annual MS megaswim to raise funds for those living with MS. It's a 24 hour swimming relay with my awesome team mates Brenda Carmichael Liam Paul Rachelle Balez Al Selves Kate Mazoudier Sarah Brady and Elizabeth Jenner 
I've challenged myself with 7 hours of swimming this year and will draw my strength from this inspirational young mum I bumped into. 
If you have a spare few $$ your support will probably bring me to tears again as I did after this encounter. Every $ helps. 

Thank you to my Sponsors
