Swim for MS News - January 2015

New Year, New Swim Challenges

In 2015 we want to challenge everyone to stay fit, spread the word, get involved, and help the MS community. Swim for MS is the perfect way to do just that. As we say goodbye to 2014 and welcome the new year, we can reflect on all that we have accomplished in the last year. Many high school, recreational, and college swim teams participated in Swim for MS and helped us raise money for individuals with MS. Help us pass last year by siging up your whole swim team or challenge a rivial team to a friendly competition. Together we can make a difference.
