2022 Fitzroy MS Mega Swim


I have decided to participate again in the MS Mega Challenge on Friday/Saturday 18/19th February to help raise money for people affected by MS. 

This is a fundraiser that I have supported for the past four years, and prior to that I did a couple of MS Melbourne Cycle 50km rides. In 2021, I swam 9.2kms in four sets with Team Bob, with whom I will swim again in 2022, and raised over $2000 thanks to the generosity of family and friends (Team Bob raised a sensational $6390!). It would have been nice to crack 10kms, but 9.2kms was a record for me (I think I swam just over 7kms in 2020).

Why do I take part in the MS Mega Challenge?

Two beautiful friends of mine, Karen and Sara, live with MS. Their positive attitude, generous spirit, intelligence, humour and kindness enriches my life and the life of their family and many friends. And, having fundraised for MS over a number of years now, I have learned that many of us know people who live with MS too. So, we're all touched by MS.

To show my appreciation, love and support for Karen and Sara, and others affected by MS, the least I can do is don my speedos, swim cap and goggles and toss my middle age body into the pool to swim my little heart out. I LOVE being in water, so it’s not too big an ask.

The very generous support of family, friends, colleagues and friends of friends has enabled me to exceed my fundraising goals in past years. In light of the challenges we have all faced in the past 24 months, I have set my fundraising target at $1000 again in 2022. There are so many worthy causes, so I understand that many people are already committed, but If you are in a position to donate, I would be most appreciative.

Have a wonderful 2022.

Thank you.
