Thank you for supporting me in the Ocean Grove MS 24 Hour Mega Swim.
Why am I taking part in this event?
I have family & friends that suffer from this insidious disease, this is my little bit to aid them in their struggle.
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.
It’s quite staggering to think that every working day 4 people are newly diagnosed with this chronic disease. 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, I will be thinking of the well wishes and comments on this page as I make my way to the Finish line at Ocean Grove MS 24 Hour Mega Swim.
