2022 Monash MS Mega Swim


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.

Why I'm doing this

Sunday 25th Sep
For the last two years during lockdown I have felt like there hasn't been a chance to try new things. This challenge is something very new for me - and a bit out my comfort zone! But I really love being part of a team and the goal here is a really important one. While I do not have anyone in my family with MS, I have had a family member pass away too early from cancer and know that these kinds of illnesses can impact so much of people's lives. I would love to raise money for MS research and to show my support for people who have been diagnosed and their families, that there is a community around them that cares. 

Thank you to my Sponsors
