2022 Fitzroy MS Mega Swim

I'M TAKING THE CHALLENGE TO FIGHT MS!

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.

1 week to go!

Saturday 12th Feb
Apologies for the late notice to start fundraising but I’m hopeful my swim can contribute a small amount to people with MS. As a Physio I’ve been fortunate to work with people from all walks of life with MS. I’m inspired by their resilience in the face of a progressive condition that challenges them daily to do things I would take for granted. I’m incredibly grateful to have the capacity to swim and hope we can continue to raise the profile and resources available to those individuals, families and communities affected by MS. 

Thanks in advance for any support you can provide.
