LOCALS are being encouraged to make a splash for a good cause at this year’s Shepparton 24 Hour Mega Swim.
Running on February 17 and 18 at Aquamoves, the event is supported by local community host, Damien Stevens, and is a fun team event that raises funds for people living with multiple sclerosis (MS).
Damien said, “Teams will be swimming relay style over the full 24 hours, with local live music and nibbles to get you through. You can swim one lap or 100 laps – you are the master of your own challenge!
“Over the past 8 years, you, the Shepparton community has raised over $100,000 and have blown us away with your generous contributions and smiling support for Australians living with multiple sclerosis. We can’t thank you enough for the way you all continue to come together as a community at the MS 24 Hour Mega Swim to fight MS!
“Funds raised go toward funding the Go for Gold Scholarship Program and Financial Assistance Programs. Go for Gold Scholarships allow someone living with MS to reach their potential in life; including employment, sport, travel, education and the arts. Financial Assistance Programs provide direct and immediate support for some of the 23,000 Australians living with multiple sclerosis.”
