The more you Swim for MS, the more we can improve the lives of those living with MS. The first two participants to exceed $3,000 in donations between October 1st and January 1st will receive a $50 Visa gift card. Feeling extra generous this season? Use that gift card to buy jackets for the homeless or blankets for the animal shelter in your area.
See you in January! Until then, just keep swimming.
Congratulations, Aiken Augusta Swim League, for being the top Swim for MS fundraiser during the month of October! Keep fundraising in November to be our top fundraiser!
