Passionate locals are being called on to sign up to the 12-hour MS Swimathon to support Queenslanders living with multiple sclerosis.
Registrations are now open for the March 26 event, which will be held at Caloundra Aquatic Lifestyle Centre. Slip on your swimmers, grab four team members and make a splash for MS.
The event is one of seven events across Queensland in 2022 that will raise vital funds for MS information, specialist nursing services and wellness programs.
The event has been hosted on the Sunshine Coast since 2016, with the 2021 MS Swimathon seeing 110 swimmers dive in to raise more than $53,000 for the cause.
“It’s a great day out for anyone looking to take on a challenge for a good cause,” MS Queensland’s fundraising events manager Claire Hughes says. “Passionate swimmer or not, we welcome everyone to get involved. It means the world to those affected by MS and their families.
“We have so many enthusiastic teams who take part every year that dress up and give it their all on the day. We’re so thankful the Sunshine Coast is excited to have us back.”
Mosaic Property Group senior contract administrator Luke de Nys says the business is proud to again sponsor the event.
“It’s a pleasure to again support the event as a long-standing partner of the charity,” he said.
“Our Mosaic team wholeheartedly participate in the event each year and have a genuine, ongoing commitment to providing support to MS Queensland and those living with MS in whatever capacity we can.
“Knowing family members and colleagues who have been diagnosed with MS, we know first-hand the impact that battling this disease has on people, their families, friends and support staff every day. We look forward to collectively making this the biggest Swimathon yet.”
