2022 Wollongong MS Mega Swim

I'M TAKING THE CHALLENGE TO FIGHT MS!

As many of my family and friends know, I love swimming. Whether its the ocean, a river or a built  swimming pool, I can't resist jumping in and doing a few laps. So I have decided to put this passion to a very worthy cause by participating in the MS MEGA CHALLENGE being held on the 12-13 March at the University of Wollongong pool, where I plan on swimming 1.5 km.  I hope that you will support me with a donation.

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 kind support.
