A unique 24 hour event in support of Multiple Sclerosis
Kicking off at 10am on Saturday and concluding 24 hours later at 10am on Sunday, this years Mega Swim will be our biggest yet! All funds raised at this event will help support those living with MS.
Gather a team of up to 15 people and divide the 24 hours up between you. All participants can swim as many times as they want providing there is a swimmer participating at any one time.
Multiple Sclerosis is the damage of the central nervous system, which can exhibit various major symptoms including fatigue, losing motor control - muscles spasms, losing coordination and balance, and neurological problems such as vision disturbances, vertigo, and so on.
The average age of diagnosis of MS is only 30 years of age. The disease strikes young Australians in the prime of their lives. We help people with multiple sclerosis to achieve as full and healthy a lifestyle as possible through the provision of services, programs and research.
The MS 24 Hour Mega Swim has been held annually in Canberra, Melbourne and Sydney for the past 10 years. To date the event has raised over $1,000,000! All profits raised from the event go towards helping people living with multiple sclerosis to achieve their dreams.
This year, the Mega Swim will be held from 10am Saturday 5 October to 10am Sunday 6 October.
