About The Swim
The Cairns MS Swimathon is a fundraising event where teams of at least 6 people are sponsored by friends, family and work colleagues to swim in a 12 hour relay; raising vital funds for Queenslanders living with multiple sclerosis (MS). You don’t need to be a ‘competitive’ swimmer to participate – people of all abilities can join in and take part.
You can swim any style or distance that suits you; whether it be 1 or 100 laps in freestyle, breaststroke, sidestroke, or doggy paddle – it is all about participation and raising funds to help beat MS!
Dive in and have fun!
Community Champion Karen Patzer
“Following my diagnosis, I turned to MS Queensland. The information I was given gave me a little more control of my life. Since that time, I have started being more conscious of my weight, diet and exercise. I have also been using support services, including, counselling and physiotherapy from the MS Queensland teams, whom I have found invaluable throughout this journey.”
