Swim for MS News - May 2019
May's featured swimmers are the Ra Ra Raisins, a Girl Scout troop from Arizona. Troop leader Mary Koch introduced the idea of Swim for MS to the girls because she thought it would be a great way for them to see how a small group of people can make a great impact on others’ lives.
Mary is excited for her troop to learn about MS and how they can help the MS community, “They will be raising both awareness of MS and making a difference in the world in the most beautiful way, by growing and changing themselves.” Troop member Carolyn said she, "wanted to support MSAA because she wants people living with MS to have a happier life."
