Swim for MS - Swim for Awareness

Have fun and help a great cause, register now for Swim for MS.

Open to all levels of swimming. You can swim any stroke or if you would prefer you can water walk.

There are no set times or dates. You can participate when it works for you.

It is as easy as:

  1. Choose any pool that is available to you
  2. Ask friends and family to sponsor you by pledging a certain dollar amount per lap or they can pledge a specific dollar amount to support your swim.
  3. Swim and have fun!

Through your participation in Swim for MS you will help to spread awareness of multiple sclerosis (MS), which is a life-long and devastating disease. It is the most common neurological disorder diagnosed in young adults and there is no cure.

Every day 30 men, women, and children are diagnosed with MS and it is estimated that there are over 400,000 people living with this disease across the United States.

Swim for MS is a volunteer fundraiser sponsored by the Multiple Sclerosis Association of America (MSAA). MSAA works to enrich the lives of everyone living with MS. (Learn more about MSAA - www.msassociation.org)
