2022 Wollongong MS Mega Swim

TAKING PART IN THE UOW MED SCHOOL TEAM TO RAISE MONEY & AWARENESS FOR MS

Joining a bunch of lovely Medical Students to raise money and awareness for Multiple Sclerosis. This challenge means a lot to me as it honours the life and legacy of my beautiful Nan who is a MS survivor and passed away in 2019. 

For this challenge will have at least one person in the pool swimming laps for 24 hours straight on the 12th-13th of March! 

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.

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.
