Swim for MS News - July 2018
#SwimSwag & Win
Tired of getting your phone wet while hashtagging #SwimSwag at the pool? Great news! Tag @MSassociation on social media and use the hashtag #SwimSwag during the month of July, and 5 lucky swimmers will win a Swim for MS waterproof phone case!
Meet Julia Cairns, one of this year's top fundraisers and July's featured swimmer. One of Julia's greatest joys in life is swimming. This is Julia's third year participating in Swim for MS, and like many other participants, she was inspired by a good friend who also loves to swim and is living with MS. Julia loves participating in Swim for MS because it's a fundraiser that allows her to work out on her own schedule and set her own fundraising goal. This year Julia has challenged herself to swim 10 miles and raise $1,500. Julia has already raised $1,328! Check out her page and help her reach her fundraising goal of $1,500.
Congratulations to Smith Cotton High School for being our top Swim for MS Fundraiser for the month of June!
YOU could be the top Swim for MS fundraiser during the month of July! The top fundraiser each month will receive a Swim for MS portable 2-in-1 cooler/chair (while supplies last). We’ll reveal the top fundraiser of the month in the next Monthly Medley email. Register to swim this month!
