Swim for MS News - January 2016
We are kicking off 2016 with a New Year Challenge! We want to challenge you to start off 2016 strong and keep it going all year long. Join MSAA’s Team. When you join, you will work together with swimmers nationwide to help improve the lives of those living with MS. You will be sent monthly challenges to complete, goals to reach, and incentives to earn. This can still be done at Any Pool, Any Time!
Not a swimmer? No problem! Our monthly challenges can be easily adapted to any fitness routine. Instead of swimming a specific number of laps you can walk, run, or ride the monthly challenge in miles, meters, or feet. To get started, register today by joining our team! For questions, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
