2021 Canberra MS Mega Swim

I'M TAKING THE CHALLENGE TO FIGHT MS!

I have long been struck by how debilitating MS can be for those affected by it. It impacts the sorts of daily activities that many take for granted—including physical activities such as the swim that I will be attempting—as well as long-term wellbeing. It affects more young people than any other chronic neurological condition: the average age of diagnosis is 30. It can affect anyone at any time and the symptoms vary widely. At present, there are no known cures for MS, only treatments to alleviate symptoms. So I have participated in a number of charity events that support MS, both in the U.K. and in Australia. But over recent years, these events have assumed a more personal relevance after a close friend was diagnosed with MS. This year's swim will be one of the first events that I have managed to undertake since his diagnosis.

 

Because of your generous sponsorship, the funds raised will allow people living with multiple sclerosis to access vital MS Support Services. These include services such as MS Peer Support, which connects people newly diagnosed with those who have lived with multiple sclerosis for a number of years, or the MS Employment Support program, which keeps Australians living with multiple sclerosis in work.

Thank you again for your support.
