Swim for MS News - November 2016
Season of Gratitude
As the weather gets colder and the days get shorter, the holiday season is fast approaching. The holiday season can mean many things to many people, but most can agree that it is a season of gratitude. Giving thanks for the good things (however few or plenty) that have happened in the past year, giving thanks for new opportunities, and giving thanks for family.
There are so many ways that you can show your gratitude to someone or something, whether it be a hug, a card, a simple “thank you” or giving back. Show your gratitude this holiday season by giving back to the MS community and Improving Lives Today with your own Swim for MS challenge. Learn more at SwimForMS.org.
