Swim for MS News - December 2016

Reaching for the Next Milestone

2016 is quickly coming to a close and this time of year is often a time of reflection of the past 365 days with all of the end-of-the-year lists of popular songs, events, and photos that made headlines throughout the year. As we close out this calendar year, Swim for MS has raised more than $450,000 for the MS community since its inception!

Now, we’re reaching for our next milestone of raising more than $500,000. Help push Swim for MS over the edge in 2017 to raise more than half a million dollars all-time by creating your own Swim Challenge. Learn more at SwimForMS.org.
