Thank you for supporting our Team "Inter-Flippers" in the 2019 Bendigo MS 24 Hour Mega Swim.
Why are we taking part in this event?
Aside from looking forward to joining others in the fun and atmosphere on the day, we are taking part to raise funds to support people living with multiple sclerosis.
Interchange Loddon-Mallee Region Inc. delivers a wide range of services to support people living with a disability in the Bendigo and Loddon-Mallee Region. We have entered a Corporate Team in this fantastic event to help increase awareness and understanding of MS, raise vital funds and to bond as a team of colleagues, participants, families and friends in a fun community event.
Multiple sclerosis affects more young people than any other chronic neurological condition and average 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 support people living with multiple sclerosis so they can 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! We will be thinking of the well wishes and comments on this page as we make our way to the Finish line at the 2019 Bendigo MS 24 Hour Mega Swim.
