Swim for MS News - August 2018
Swim Challenge – Do it for Chair-ity!
Register for Swim for MS for your chance to win a cool prize! Any swimmer who raises $1,000 or more during August and September will be sent a Swim for MS portable chair that doubles as a cooler! It's a perfect all-in-one chair for hot summer days by the pool.
August’s featured group is team Stafford Swim for MS! Not only was this the fourth year in a row that the Stafford Chapter of the National Honor Society has participated in a Swim for MS fundraiser, but it was their best yet! The team raised more than $800 during their one-day event at the local city pool. The group collected $2 for each swim lap completed and $1 for every cannonball jump. Help the Stafford Swim for MS reach their $1,000 goal by donating here!
Congratulations to Coach Jordan Bright and the Eagle Harbor Swim Team for being our top Swim for MS Fundraisers for the month of July!
YOU could be the top Swim for MS fundraiser during the month of August! Register to swim this month and we’ll reveal the top fundraiser of the month in the next Monthly Medley email.
